Barra is an island in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland, and the second southernmost inhabited island there, after the adjacent island of Vatersay to which it is connected by a short causeway.
Samuel John Peploe (27 January 1871 – 11 October 1935) was a Scottish Post-Impressionist painter, noted for his still life works and for being one of the group of four painters that became known as the Scottish Colourists. The other colourists were John Duncan Fergusson, Francis Cadell and Leslie Hunter. Peploe first visited the island of Barra in the Outer Hebrides in 1894 and this work was created during his final trip to the island in 1903. Peploe's early landscape painting was invariably small in scale, painted directly in front of his subject on standard-size small, wooden panels.
