A Scottish Colourist in Edinburgh: S. J. Peploe's Studios

Online talk Joining details available via the Friends newsletter
  • Thursday 17 December


Come on a tour of the Scottish Colourist S. J. Peploe's Edinburgh studios with Alice Strang, Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.

Along with F. C. B. Cadell, John Duncan Fergusson and George Leslie Hunter, Peploe is part of the group known as the 'Scottish Colourists'. They are, arguably, the most celebrated Scottish artists of the twentieth century.

Peploe was born in Edinburgh in 1871 and lived there for almost all of his life, before his death in the capital in 1935. This talk will lead us around his surviving studios and will take a look at the work he made in each one. Starting and finishing in Shandwick Place in the West End, via York Place and Queen Street, we will follow in the footsteps of the Scottish Colourist in Edinburgh. 

This talk will be available from Thursday 17 December via our Friends email newsletter. It is part of a new series of exclusive online talks providing our Friends events programme in a different format. There will be two per month, with each remaining available for two weeks so you can choose when you would like to watch them.

No booking or advance registration is required in order to view these free Friends-only talks. The links to view them will be sent out each fortnight as part of our email newsletter. If you have a Friends membership but do not currently receive our Friends email newsletter, please contact [email protected] to sign up.
