  • The Pier at Cove, Loch Long - Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell RSA was a Scottish Colourist painter, renowned for his depictions of the elegant New Town interiors of his native Edinburgh, and for his work on Iona. Cadell's pre-war work is influenced by the Impressionists. From around 1920, his work became brighter and bolder. Shadows were suppressed to such an extent that the paintings of this period are comprised of areas of flat colour.

    Oil on panel

    The colour and broad-brush techniques Cadell learnt from painters like Matisse and Monet can be seen in this study of a steamer alongside the pier at Cove. In the distance is a view of the hills and the entrance to Loch Long. In 1934 the painting was given as a wedding present to Katharine Tennant, the half-sister of Margot Asquith, wife of the prime minister Herbert Asquith. Katherine was known to enjoy sailing in the area around Cove. The history and culture of steamer travel around the coasts of Scotland is of particular interest to the Scottish Maritime Museum, and this picture is a rare example of the industry as depicted by a modern artist of national significance.

Francis CadellBorn in Edinburgh, Cadell studied art in Paris and the Royal Scottish Academy. An education could have wrecked an otherwise promising career when the Scottish President tried to stop him painting with his left hand because ' No artist ever became great who did so.' 'Sir and did not the great Michelangelo paint with his left hand?' replied Cadell swiftly, and as his opponent walked off discomfited, Cadell admitted that whilst he himself had no idea with what hand Michelangelo painted, there again, neither did the President. This spontaneity and lightness of touch was to find its consumation in Cadell's paintings. A member of the so-called 'Scottish Colourists', a loose-knit group composed of the artists S.J. Peploe (1871-1935), and J.D. Fergusson (1874-1961), the group's paintings were noted for their freedom of handling, and richness of colour, their inspiration coming both from the post impressionists and the bold brushstrokes and colouring of the Glasgow painters at the turn of the century. Cadell was the quickest painter of the group and a master sketcher, capturing with a keen and sure eye, the beauties of the landscape. A superlative colourist, he found his chief inspiration in the Scottish islands, particularly Iona, where he invariably spent the summer: 'It was in Iona that Cadell lived his fuller life as an artist.' Wrote T.J. Honeyman, 'And it is to his work there that the Scottish colour tradition label may be most fittingly applied.' (Three Scottish Colourists T. J. Honeyman, London, 1950)
