Peploe in Mayfair

On my way to the RA last week, I did some art gallery window shopping in New Bond Street and saw a notice in the window of the Richard Green Gallery about an S.J. Peploe exhibition coming up. Peploe's a well known Scottish Colourist painter of the early 20th Century; an artist and a group of artists I like. The Glasgow and Edinburgh Galleries have a few but you do not get many opportunities to see more unless you do much more travelling.

A good small exhibition of some lovely paintings, particularly the still lives. If you're in the area pop in. You can also see the catalogue online.

Still Life of Pink and Red Roses in a Chinese Vase
Oil on canvas, 25x25", 1918-1922

Some were from a private collection, some for sale. The price for a larger canvas like this was getting close to a million (pounds sterling).

Apples and Pears
Oil on canvas, 18x21.5", 1918
