Waves About 1903

Not on display

  • Scottish Art
Peploe made this study of waves, possibly whilst on Barra, in the Outer Hebrides. It appears to have been completed very quickly with abrupt brushstrokes and thickly applied paint, creating an almost abstract interpretation of the stormy sea. There is a force and directness of the way in which Peploe has painted this scene which compliments the subject.
