Figure in Hat 1915
  • Scottish Art
This simple drawing epitomises Cadell’s skill in capturing a figure with a few swift, inky brushstrokes. Cadell produced a series of drawings like this before leaving for service in France in the First World War. Twenty of the drawings were published in 1916 in the book ‘Jack and Tommy’, which was sold to benefit the Red Cross. Their clean lines and flat colours anticipate the style of his painting in the 1920s.
