During the 1920s, a group of artists known as the Scottish Colourists emerged. Their highly developed use of colour was unpopular at the time because it undermined classic tones and texture. By the 1980s, however, they were highly regarded, and became a big influence in contemporary Scottish art.
Pallant House Gallery is currently showcasing the work of the Scottish Colourist's leading figure, John Duncan Fergusson. Having lived in Scotland, France, and England, he has come to be the most internationally renowned of the group, and is celebrated particularly for his Impressionist paintings of women.
