Pictured: Anemones in a yellow vase by George Leslie Hunter (1877-1931) admired by picture specialsit May Matthews
A fabulous selection of paintings by the world-famous Scottish Colourists – Samuel Peploe, George Leslie Hunter, Francis Cadell and J.D Fergusson – lead the Bonhams Scottish Art sale.
They include pictures from a fine private collection of Scottish Art led by Peploe’s Still Life with Tureen and Fruit. Painted around 1926, Still Life with Tureen and Fruit shows the influence of the French Post-Impressionist master Paul Cézanne. Peploe’s compositions were meticulously planned and executed, creating the dialogue between object and space for which he and his fellow Colourists were renowned which is estimated at £120,000-180,000.
Other Scottish Colourist works on show include:
Anemones in a Yellow Vase by George Leslie Hunter (1877-1931). Dating from the mid to late 1920s – a golden period for Hunter still lives – Anemones in a Yellow Vase shows the influence of Matisse on the artist’s work. Estimate: £50,000-80,000.
Gypsy in a Landscape by Peploe (1871-1935). Originally thought to be a portrait of Margaret, the artist's wife, dressed as a gypsy, the work painted around 1900 is now widely believed to depict one of the Blyth sisters, who were related to the kings of the Gypsies. Estimate: £60,000-80,000.
Peonies in a Silver Vase by Peploe. In the 1890s, Peploe studied in Paris, where he was greatly influenced by the work of Edouard Manet, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin and Gustave Courbet. During further training in Holland, he discovered the seventeenth-century Dutch painters, especially Frans Hals. From a distillation of these influences, he developed his own tonal style as seen in this work which he painted around 1897 shortly after he settled back in Edinburgh. Estimate: £60,000-80,000.
Paris street scene by John Duncan Fergusson RBA (1874-1961). Between 1907 and 1914 Fergusson lived in Paris where he
