After about 1910 Peploe turned away from portraiture and figure painting in favour of still-lives and landscapes. By 1920 he had abandoned the impressionistic brushwork of his early years for a much tighter handling, which owes much to Cézanne. At the same time, he brought an almost geometric structure to his compositions and introduced bright, acid colours. He generally painted the same motifs - flowers, fruit, fans, and crockery - arranged in different combinations.

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.
