Still Life with Teapot on Round Table

About this artwork

This still life was painted in Redpath's home in Hawick. It was described by a reporter in 1947: “Immediately on entering her sitting room I felt as though I had stepped into one of her pictures. There was a tea tray standing on a little table as I had so often seen it, and, as on the painted tables, the cups did not match! On the mantelpiece were familiar pieces of crockery - a pink and white teapot, a petunia-coloured bowl, a Worcester jug with a bright band of blue around it.” Following the tradition of artists like Matisse and Vuillard, Redpath’s paintings are intimate portrayals of her own domestic setting. A second still life, titled Still Life with Milk Bottle and also pictured above, is painted on the reverse side of the support.
