Samuel John Peploe

56 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #4162
Post impressionism

Born in Edinburgh in 1871, Samuel Peploe is considered to be an important representative of the Scottish colorists, who are attributed to late Impressionism. Peploe's color palette is light and powerful. His subjects include landscapes, places, portraits and still lifes. An artist who completed his academic training first at the Art Academy in Edinburgh and then received instruction at the private academy Julian at Montmartre showed himself here in image composition and technical skill. In addition, Peploe perfected his knowledge of the Académie Colarossi, a private institute that had the reputation of being modern and even progressive compared to the Paris Academy of Arts: here there were also male models and lecturers!

A stay in Holland from 1895 became the landmark of his career. Here, Samuel John Peploe studied and copied the portraiture of Frans Hals and Rembrandt van Rijn. Leading the way was also starting from 1901 a journey to France. Light in nature and the simple brushstrokes on the canvas motif have become Peploes trademarks. "Street in Cassis" from 1913 shows the influence of the great French painters on their colleagues from Scotland. Even the "still life" with a fruit bowl and a white jug shows how the painter understood how to capture the southern French light and the atmosphere of a hot summer's day with few means. Not without reason does this recall Paul Cézanne and his declared role model Édouard Manet.

From 1910 to 1920 Peploe lived in Paris, focusing on landscape paintings and still lifes. "Streetscene, Cassis" from 1913 is a fine example of the time with a thick brushstroke, a clear division of the area and a splendid color palette. Even when he returned to Scotland, Peploe continued to focus on clean lines, bright colors and attention to detail. © Meisterdrucke
