Peploe first painted on the island of Iona in 1920 with fellow Scottish Colourist F.C.B. Cadell, and the two artists returned together most summers. Peploe was particularly fond of the rocky northern end of the island and its views towards Mull. Fascinated by the artistic possibilities of the island’s light and dramatic, changeable weather, Iona became a favourite motif for Peploe, as he painted it in all weathers and abandoned the warm colours of his still lives for a palette of cool greens and blues.

Samuel John Peploe (1871 – 1935) is one of the group of four artists known as the 'Scottish Colourists'. Born in Edinburgh, he studied art in Paris and lived there from 1910 to 1912. French painting proved to be a powerful influence for Peploe throughout his life. Although his work never became abstract, it was characterised by tight composition, strong colour, and assured handling.
