Francis Cadell

1883-1937 Scotland-Colourist

 

Brief Biography-Francis Cadell from Edinburgh studied at the Académie Julian in Paris. He was strongly influenced by Henri Matisse and the fauvist movement. When he returned to Scotland he was later to help form a group with other Scottish artists that became known as the Scottish Colourist painters. Their work became popular internationally as a mixture of impressionism and fauvism.
When Francis wasn't painting in his home town of Edinburgh he paid regular trips to the island of Iona which features in many of his paintings. His works were exhibited in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. Sadly, he had little success selling his paintings in his later life and he died a poor man.
