Footnotes

  • EXHIBITED: Liverpool Autumn Exhibition 1933
    PROVENANCE: Aitken Dott, Edinburgh. Purchased by a friend of the artist, who had been a student at Edinburgh College of Art, and by descent.
    Peploe first visited the tiny island of Iona, a place of great spiritual resonance and beauty, in 1920, possibly inspired by Cadell's love of the island. Peploe showed ten views at the celebrated 'Three Scottish Colourists' show at the Leicester Galleries in 1923, and these sold readily. He was much inspired by the light, white sand and pink rocks, and this larger-format oil shows the spontaneity and freshness which was more charateristic of his later landscapes. This is a view of the Sound of Iona, looking to Mull and Ben More.
