Samuel John Peploe 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.
This work was painted during a time when Peploe was experimenting with using areas of bright colour in his still life paintings. He felt that every plane was to be represented by a change of colour and selected material for his still lives which could be treated in flat areas of strong colour. In this work the outlines are bold - some are blue or dark red - to emphasise the objects and their relation to one another.
