Scottish Colourists from the Fleming Collection

27th May - 15th October 2017
YHA Berwick

‘Scottish Colourists from the Fleming Collection’ is the first major touring exhibition curated by the renowned Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation, which owns the finest collection of Scottish art outside institutions.

The exhibition will include 26 works by the Scottish Colourists - SJ Peploe, JD Fergusson, George Leslie Hunter and FCB Cadell – charting their careers from early experimentalism to the breakthrough moment of their exposure to contemporary French masters such as Matisse and the Fauves. 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 regularly loans individual works to national and international institutions and promotes the work of Scottish artists outside of Scotland. 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.

Admission is free.
