    Edinburgh, National Gallery of Scotland, Cadell Memorial Exhibition, 1942

    Cadell first visited the tiny island of Iona, on the west coast of Scotland, in 1912, and worked there virtually every summer. He (and Peploe) favoured the North End of the island and Cadell became a familiar 'worthy', sketching on the beach in kilt and silk shirt. His Iona works display great economy, generally produced on this standard scale to depict the island in its myriad guises according to fleeting light and atmospheric conditions. He rarely included 'features' in these coastal views and the depiction here of an elegant yacht, its dinghy a welcome note of pure colour, is particularly effective. Director of Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow, TJ Honeyman, biographer of the Colourists and the man who coined the term, deemed Cadell's Iona works the 'archetypal Colourist pictures.'
