The Scottish painter Peploe spent a number of years in Paris, where he responded to a range of influences from contemporary avant-garde art. Although he painted figure subjects and landscapes, Peploe preferred still life to both. “There is so much,” he explained, “in mere objects, flowers, leaves, jugs, what not—colors, forms, relations—I can never see that mystery coming to an end.”
