Dealer Notes
R. M. Blythman is better known as the poet Thurso Berwick.
Born in Leith, J.D. Fergusson lived in Paris in the 1890s where he studied the Impressionists. He exhibited in London in 1905 and settled in Paris in 1907 working in a Fauvist style then later in a more Cubist manner. He had four works exhibited in a Post-Impressionist and Futurist Exhibition in London in 1913. His first solo show in Scotland was in 1923 which was followed by an exhibition with the three other Scottish Colourists, Peploe, Cadell and Hunter. The Colourists were very important in furthering the influence of certain aspects of continental Modernism on Scottish Painting.
