Catalogue Note

In 1910 Fergusson and fellow artist Samuel John Peploe spent the summer painting in the town of Royan, producing a number of vibrant scenes of the harbour. Fergusson’s work of this date becomes more structured and formalised in style and focuses less on the painterly aspects that dominated his previous works. Form plays an increasingly important role in this period although references to the Fauvist movement can still be observed, particularly in the figure of the sailor.
