Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE: Ian Macnicol, Glasgow.
    1909 was a key year for Cadell. He acquired his first studio, at 137 George St, Edinburgh, and had a one-man show at Aitken Dott. Although not a great success in terms of sales, the show included major works such as 'White Peonies', which was bought by Sir Patrick Ford who funded his trip to Venice in 1910.
    This picture is classic early Cadell - painterly, with rich colour handled spontaneously, and whole areas blocked in quickly. It is a fascinating glimpse of the artist at work, as one can see how the chair has been swiftly repositioned to the middle of the composition. The lilac wall is a keynote to many of the later Ainslie Place pictures, and Cadell's delight in fine objects and elegant interiors is evident.
