About this artwork

Cadell first set foot on the island of Iona, tucked off Scotland's western coast, back in 1912. From then on, he became a frequent visitor, often accompanied by Peploe. His artwork captures the simple, everyday scenes on the island, like the vibrantly coloured roofs depicted here. Much like the south of France, he believed that the island’s light had a special quality. Both Cadell and Peploe found Iona’s peacefulness to be a nice contrast to their bustling life in Edinburgh. The paintings Cadell created of the island, full of bold colours and chunky brushstrokes, were a hit and easy to sell whenever he was back in the city.

About the artist

Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell, a distinguished member of the Scottish Colourists, demonstrated his artistic prowess early in his Edinburgh upbringing. By age sixteen, he was studying at Paris' Académie Julian, immersing himself in the vibrant French art scene. He alternated between Edinburgh and Paris from 1902 to 1905, gradually kickstarting his professional career. In 1907, he joined Munich's Akademie der Bildenden Künste before hosting his debut solo exhibition in Edinburgh a year later.

In 1909, Cadell established a studio in George Street, Edinburgh's heart. That same year, he formed a lifelong friendship with S.J. Peploe and explored a bolder use of colour during a 1910 trip to Venice. By 1912, Cadell had visited the Hebridean island of Iona and would make it a yearly pilgrimage. His pre-war years were marked by social stature in Edinburgh and a signature palette of white, cream, black, and pops of bold colour.

Cadell's World War I years added another dimension to his artwork, evidenced by a remarkable series of military-themed drawings. Despite initially being declared unfit, Cadell persevered until he joined the 9th Battalion, The Royal Scots in 1915. His humorous yet evocative illustrations of army and navy life became well known, exhibiting his unique ability to capture a scene's essence with minimal lines. Post-war, Cadell continued to refine his style, focusing on tightly-cropped compositions and bold colours, particularly in his beloved landscapes of Iona. His contributions to British art were recognised with memberships in the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour and the Royal Scottish Academy.
