Who Is Samuel Peploe?
Samuel John Peploe (1871 – 1935) is a Scottish Post-Impressionist painter, noted for his still life paintings. He is the best known of the Scottish Colourists, a group including John Duncan Fergusson, Francis Cadell and Leslie Hunter. Peploe explains his focus on still lifes as follows:
‘There is so much in mere objects, flowers, leaves, jugs, what-not – colours, forms, relation – I can never see mystery coming to an end’(S.J. Peploe, quoted in G. Peploe, S.J. Peploe 1871-1935, Edinburgh, 2000, p. 54).
