This new exhibition brings together the significant works of Scottish Colourists S.J. Peploe (1871 – 1935), J.D. Fergusson (1874 – 1961), G.L. Hunter (1877 – 1931) and F.C.B. Cadell (1883 – 1935). The works include paintings and drawings which represent all of the favoured subjects of the artists such as still-life, interior scenes, landscapes and portraiture.

The Scottish Colourists were among the first British artists to get to grips with the radical new trends in painting which emerged at the beginning of the twentieth century. They loved to travel and this will be reflected in their depiction of bright and beautiful European destinations.
