Fergusson lived in Paris from 1907 until 1913 where, more than any of his Scottish contemporaries, he embraced and developed the latest advances in French painting by artists including Derain, Matisse and Picasso.
Fergusson is most celebrated for depictions of the female form, but he also painted landscapes in England, France and Scotland, that were of great significance and exhibited sculptures for over thirty years.
