28 x 35.6 cm art print featuring On the French Coast by Samuel John Peploe from the National Galleries of Scotland collection. This print comes delivered rolled in a cardboard tube.
Peploe worked on the north coast of France several times between 1904 and 1907, often alongside fellow Scottish Colourist, John Duncan Fergusson.
This fresh and direct painting is typical of the small panels on which he worked, en plein air, in an Impressionist manner. Thick, long brush strokes capture the essence of the beach scene, rather than its details, using a limited range of colours to convey the varying natural light of the scene.
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 four painters that became known as the Scottish Colourists. The other colourists were John Duncan Fergusson, Francis Cadell and Leslie Hunter.
