Extensively illustrated in colour, this art book offers a fascinating insight into Scottish artist Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell, an artist who many consider to be the most important of the Scottish Colourists. It includes many unpublished paintings and accompanied the first major retrospective of the artist's work which was held at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell RSA (12 April 1883 – 6 December 1937) was a Scottish Colourist painter, renowned for his elegant depictions New Town interiors, Edinburgh, and for his work on Iona. He was influenced by the effects of strong sunlight, which led them to use areas of bright colour in their paintings. Cadell's pre-war work is influenced by the Impressionists. After the war his work became brighter and bolder.
