Footnotes

  • This portrait depicts Able Seaman Vickery, of HMS Tiger, whom Cadell portayed bust-length in another study (T. Hewlett, Cadell, a Scottish Colourist, Edinburgh, 1988, plate 75).

    Although known as a painter of women, Cadell often employed them more as stylised motifs or 'fashion plates' as part of a decorative whole. However his male subjects are often more sympathetic and closely-observed, and he regularly painted athletes or Leith servicemen, particularly post war. These oils were often nudes, such as Negro, Pensive and The Boxer, and Cadell exhibited such subjects eg The Footballer at the RSA in 1919 and Negro with Orange at the RGI in 1921.
