Still Life by S.J. Peploe

This masterwork by the Scottish Colourist Samuel John Peploe, 1871-1935 is one his great still life works, a genre in which he specialised. It was probably painted around 1917-1918 and contains all the classic still life elements. The painting was purchased by the Stuart Anderson Bequest in 1929 and is one of the greatest works in the McLean Museum's collection.
