Samuel John Peploe, a Scottish Modernist - Talk by Guy Peploe.

Friday 17th May, 2013

SJ Peploe RSA.   Born in 1871 he is the senior of the four artists now known as The Scottish Colourists. SJ Peploe had his first exhibition at The Scottish Gallery in 1903 and a life long association with us until his untimely death in 1935. He lived in Paris from 1910 until 1912 where his work changed radically from paintings reminiscent of Manet and Sargent to brilliant Fauvist works which placed him in the vanguard of British Modernism.  By the time of his early death aged 64 in 1935 he was recognised as a great painter but only by a small coterie of collectors and curators, like Ion Harrison and Stanley Cursiter and it has taken a further fifty years for his national and international significance to be fully appreciated. Guy Peploe is the world’s leading authority on the work of S J Peploe.                            Born: 1871 Died: 1935

12.30 – 2.00pm in the Whitworth Art Gallery                            Cost per ticket; Members £5 Non members £7   For tickets please apply promptly.
