Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    G.G. Service
    With The Fine Art Society, London, May 1976

    EXHIBITED:
    Loaned to London, The Fine Art Society, The Scottish Colourists, 19 June-21 July 2000, cat. no. 5

    TJ Honeyman, author of Three Scottish Colourists (Faber, London, 1950) and the man who coined the term, considered Cadell's Iona series to be the archetypal 'Colourist' pictures. The artist visited Iona almost annually from 1912, attracted by its beauty and the fleeting effects of climate and light, and he explored the North End of the tiny island assiduously en plein air. This work had been in the collection of the Service family, friends of the artist on Iona, who amassed the most significant group of these works.
