Samuel John Peploe (Scottish, 1871-1935), Landscape at Cassis, oil/canvas, 1924. Peploe’s use of rich, bright colours suggests the baking heat and strong sunlight of the South of France. The composition echoes the work of Cézanne. The elements of the painting are meshed together like a tapestry using short, even brushstrokes. The balance of colours and repetition of the spiky, succulent plants is used to great decorative effect.
