The Scotsman is proud that the rebound in the art market is bringing works of the Scottish Colourists onto the market:
Sotheby’s expects its sale of Scottish pictures to bring in more than £2.3 million. Peploe’s striking Tulips, from 1912, valued at £300,000-£500,000, goes on show with the other works in Edinburgh before heading to London for the 22 April auction. Two pictures in the Sotheby’s sale are Colourist works that have been passed down through several generations and are only now going on sale. FCB Cadell’s bright and breezy Florian Café, Venice, estimated to fetch £100,000-£150,000, is being sold by the great-grandson of one of the painter’s leading patrons. George Leslie Hunter’s work Chrysanthemums, estimated at £200,000-£300,000, is another family heirloom.
