Scottish Colourists from the Fleming Collection

The University of Hull is showing a major exhibition, Scottish Colourists from the Fleming Collection from 25 May to 15 July 2018.

The Scottish Colourists Samuel Peploe, Francis Cadell, John Duncan Fergusson and Leslie Hunter are renowned around the world for their amazing use of colour.

Together they introduced the dramatic intense colours of French Impressionism and Fauvism into British art in the 1920s, influenced, while in Paris, by the art of Monet, Matisse and Cezanne. In this extensive exhibition, paintings by these four celebrated Scottish artists will be on display at the University of Hull.

This follows on from the programme of outstanding art exhibitions marking Hull’s period as UK City of Culture in 2017, which saw visitors coming in their thousands to the University’s gallery in the Brynmor Jones Library.

The Fleming Collection was formed by the Robert Fleming Bank after 1968 and became the finest private collection of Scottish art. It is now owned by the Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation.
