​Browse & Darby are delighted to announce an exhibition of works on paper by John Duncan Fergusson organised in association with Alexander Meddowes Fine Art.

About

John Duncan Fergusson (1874-1961) is the most international of the Scottish Colourists and best known for his paintings of metropolitan life and portraits of women. He was born in Leith, Edinburgh but spent much of his adult life living and working in Paris where he became closely associated with the prominent modern artists of the day, Derain and Matisse amongst them. Heavily influenced by their work, and by Fauvism in particular, his first years in Paris were the most transitional years of his professional working life.

On display at Browse & Darby is a collection of drawings from this important period which were acquired by a friend of the artist and many of which have never been exhibited. Drawing was a cornerstone of Fergusson’s practice and fundamental to how he developed both technically and conceptually. These works provide therefore not only a fascinating document of his life but also of his experimental approach to working from observation.
