"A well-illustrated, good introduction to the life and art of John Duncan Fergusson." -- Choice

From the Publisher

The Scottish Colourists are now among the most admired of early 20th-century artists. Their contact with French post-impressionism and the Fauves encouraged them to produce paintings that are considered to be among the most progressive in British art. Of the Colourists, J.D. Fergusson was the most versatile and experimental, and his vibrant palette and powerful nudes have an immediate and lasting impact on the viewer. This opulent volume charts the life and career of the artist: his early life in Edinburgh; his visits to Paris, which brought him into contact with bohemian society and the French avant-garde; his explosion onto the European art scene; and his last years in Glasgow at the forefront of a Scottish cultural renaissance. Spanning the breadth of the artist's career, Living Paint draws richly from the collection of The Fergusson Gallery, including oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, and sculptures.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a delightful read if you have an eye for French art filtered through a Scottish & English sensibility and spirit. Fergusson and Peploe were immensely gifted artists and there is a lot of insight into why and how they lived and grew as artists in this book. I recommend it without reservations.
