Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Purchased in Edinburgh in the early 1960s

    Painted circa 1912-15, when Peploe returned from France and embarked on a series of exploratory still life and landscape subjects which reveal his knowledge of the Fauves, Van Gogh and Cezanne. The flattened picture space, simplified forms, strong colour, emphasis on design and distinctive hatching technique are all hallmarks of the period. His contemporary still life oils tended to depict tulips, with their visually arresting arabesques, but Peploe was known to use whatever flowers were in season and would have responded to bright yellow daffodil heads which he throws into relief against the dark blue background. The (Japanese) print backdrop was a pictorial device he used more than once pre-1920.
