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.

The Scottish Colourist: JD Fergusson exhibition is divided into five rooms, each one encompassing his stays in various cities, including Edinburgh, Paris, London, and Glasgow.

The exhibit runs until the 19th October with admission at 9.50 for adults, 4 children or 5.50 students.
