The Scottish Colourists are among Britain’s most cherished artists. The group were among the first to introduce the intense colour of the French ‘les fauves’ (the wild beasts) movement into Britain in the 1920s. All of the artists were influenced by French painters including Manet and the later Impressionists, Cézanne, Matisse and the fauves. All of these influences subtly shaped their output while they also drew heavily on their Scottish artistic heritage.

Guy Peploe, Managing Director of The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh, is the acknowledged expert on his grandfather's work, S.J. Peploe. He has written and lectured extensively on S.J. Peploe and has published articles on F.C.B. Cadell and Scottish art in general. He regularly contributes to television and radio. He will also discuss the activities of the group and provide insight into the private and public personalities of the artists.
