About

An exhibition of work by the Scottish Colourists is to open at The Granary Gallery in Berwick-upon-Tweed on Saturday 27 May. ‘Scottish Colourists from the Fleming Collection’ is the first major touring exhibition curated by the renowned Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation, and will include 26 works by SJ Peploe, JD Fergusson, George Leslie Hunter and FCB Cadell.

The exhibition will chart the Scottish Colourists’ careers from early experimentalism to the breakthrough moment of their exposure to contemporary French masters such as Matisse and the Fauves to their mature works. Hailed as leading exponents of post-impressionism in Britain, the Colourists are one of the most admired schools of the early twentieth century. Examples by precursors such as the Glasgow Boys, John Lavery and Arthur Melville, will also be on show.

The Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation owns the finest collection of Scottish art outside institutions and regularly loans individual works to national and international institutions. The Granary Gallery in Berwick will be the first host gallery for the Foundation’s major touring show which is part of its ‘museum without walls’ strategy – and signals the first ever dedicated exhibition of Scottish Colourists in the north of England.
