We are delighted to present a touring exhibition of paintings and sculptures by the Scottish Colourist, John Duncan Fergusson (1874-1961), to celebrate the 150th anniversary of his birth, in partnership with the Fleming Collection.

Born in 1874 in Leith, near Edinburgh, Fergusson is one of the four artists, along with fellow Colourists F. C. B. Cadell, G. L. Hunter and S. J. Peploe, who are revered as the masters of modern Scottish art. Fergusson has the most international reputation of the group, not least due to key periods spent living in Paris before World War One and during the 1930s. As the longest-lived of the Colourists, Fergusson also played an important role in the Scottish art world after World War Two, from a base in Glasgow.

The works on display follow Fergusson’s emergence as an artist of sophistication in Edwardian Edinburgh, to his role in the development of modern art in Paris, to the inspiration he found in the Scottish Highlands and the joy of portraying the pupils of the Summer Schools held in France by his wife, the dance pioneer Margaret Morris (1891-1980). A selection of sculptures reveal his lesser-known talents as the only sculptor amongst the Colourists, led by the celebrated Eástre (Hymn to the Sun) of 1924 (illustrated above). All the works have been lent from private collections and from our exhibition partners, the Fleming Collection.
