Exceptional Scottish Colourists Star in Bonhams Scottish Sale

LONDON.- An exceptional late still life by Scottish Colourist, George Leslie Hunter, (est £100,000 – 150,000) is the star lot in this year’s annual Scottish sale (17-20 Aug inclusive).

Entitled simply, ‘Still Life’, it showcases the full range of Hunter's talents, and features his keynote motifs of pink roses, goblet, fruit, fabric and drapery. “The meticulous composition is carefully worked yet retains the freshness and painterly panache evident in his best work,” commented Bonhams Head of Pictures in Edinburgh, Chris Brickley.

The sale also features a fine, ‘Iona’, by Samuel Peploe. Painted in 1933, it shows the Sound of Iona, looking to Mull and Ben More and is priced at between £80,000 – 100,000. Peploe first visited the tiny island of Iona in 1920 and showed ten views at the celebrated 'Three Scottish Colourists' show at the Leicester Galleries in London in 1923. He was much inspired by the light, white sand and pink rocks, and this larger-format oil shows the spontaneity and freshness which was more characteristic of his later landscapes.

Another perspective on Iona is offered in a work by Francis Cadell, who is credited with introducing his fellow colourist Peploe to the island. It is estimated at between £25,000 – 35,000.

Finally, there are two paintings by Anne Redpath. A beautiful and subtle view of Cagnes-sur-Mer on the French Riviera painted in the late 1930s (£60,000 – 80,000) is one of the artist’s first major “hill town” oils rendered in the characteristic chalky palette of the period. ‘Houses on the Lagoon, Murano’ is a very late work from 1964, when according to critics, her painting achieved a purity in which form and content had become inseparable.
