    JD Fergusson and Anne Estelle Rice first visited the picturesque fishing village of Cassis, near Marseille, in 1913, craving more sun and light. It had been popular with the Fauves, much admired by Fergusson and Peploe. Fergusson was inspired by the locale, and encouraged Peploe and his family to join them. Peploe was similarly enthused by the harbour, squares and skyline, and it was a productive visit. This work has a strong geometric structure, mapped out in characteristic blue outlines, which contrasts effectively with the natural cliff forms behind. The pleasingly warm palette alone vindicates their decision to travel to the Midi, and it would also become a favoured haunt of Cadell and Hunter.
