The Scottish Colourist Series - S J Peploe

An extraordinary archive helps tell the story of Scottish Colourist S J Peploe

Commissioned by the National Galleries of Scotland, this is the second in a series of exhibition films focusing on the Scottish Colourists.

It pays particular attention to the unique archive of photographs and letters currently on show at the galleries. Eloquently brought to life by the artist's grandson Guy Peploe the film tells a very intimate story and contributions from Alice Strang and Elizabeth Cumming put his work into wider context alongside contemporaries such as Picasso and Braque.
