S.J. Peploe, Tulips in a Pottery Vase (c.1912), Hunterian Art Gallery, Glasgow.
Oil on canvas 45.5 x 40.5 cms.
This painting shows the volte face that occurred in Peploe’s style in the second decade of the twentieth century. Around 1912 his paintings become marked by an acidic, almost garish palate. Fergusson attributes Peploe’s increasing interest in bright colours and decorative compositions to his exposure to contemporary art in Paris: ‘Peploe and I went everywhere together. I took him to see Picasso and he was very much impressed. We went to the Salone d’Automne where we met Bourdelle, Friesz, Pascin and others. He’s started to send to the Salon d’Automne. I was very happy, for I felt that at last he was in a suitable milieu, something more sympathetic than the RSA. He was working hard, and changed from blacks and greys to colour and design.’*
