Samuel John Peploe

S J Peploe was born in Edinburgh in 1871.  On leaving school he entered the law firm of Scott and Glover but his heart was not in the law and he began art classes.  His art education included time at the Trustees Academy, study in Paris and back in Edinburgh at the Royal Scottish Academy Life Class.


It was in 1904 that he first began annual visits to France with his friend J D Ferguson and in 1910 and 1911 he was in Paris, where his circle of friends included Jessie M King and E A Taylor.  In 1913 he first experienced the bright colours of the Mediterranean on a visit to Cassis. 


Peploe had an open invitation to visit the Taylors in Kirkcudbright after they settled there in 1915 and the south-west was to be a very productive painting ground over the next few years. Kirkcudbright works can be seen in The Tolbooth Art Centre in Kirkcudbright itself and many other galleries. As his grandson Guy Peploe has written “The stolid geometry of Kirkcudbright, its tolbooth, castle and harbour, provided inspiration and the type of subject-matter which lent itself well to the geometrical analysis which was still the artist’s dominant concern.  These works are also some of the last where colour is pushed beyond naturalism onto the territory of fauvism.”


Peploe was back in Kirkcudbright again in 1917 and it was that year that he was over near Dalbeattie painting Laggan Farm Buildings and Cornfield, Douglas Hall with its echo of Cézanne. Like many others Peploe was persuaded to take part in Jessie’s historical pageants in Kirkcudbright.  A photograph survives of him dressed as the Pied Piper.


In 1926 Peploe stayed at the Commercial Inn, New Abbey and was in New Abbey again  in 1928 where he painted his Sweetheart Abbey, now in Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery  A  painting Paysage, exhibited in Paris in 1931 and purchased by the French state was probably painted in the woods at Shambellie, New Abbey, the home of Ted Stewart, Cadell’s friend and lawyer.


Peploe’s last visit to Kirkcudbright was in the late spring of 1931, when he stayed at the Selkirk Arms.  In letters to his wife he delights in the hospitality of the Taylors, shows his reserve towards other local artists and tries to read the newly published The Five Red Herrings of which he says: “What a silly, dull book-full of padding.”


For  a brief period at the end of his life Peploe taught at Edinburgh College of Art but his health was deteriorating and he died aged 64 in 1935.  In the foreword to his memorial exhibition E A Taylor wrote; “Never have I known a man more true to himself, his home, his friends and his inspiration - all attributes which make memory of him lasting and his art enduring.”
