About this artwork

Peploe worked on the north coast of France several times between 1904 and 1907, often alongside fellow Scottish Colourist, John Duncan Fergusson. This fresh and direct painting is typical of the small panels on which he worked, en plein air, in an Impressionist manner. Thick, long brush strokes capture the essence of the beach scene, rather than its details, using a limited range of colours to convey the varying natural light of the scene.
