Catalogue Note

‘It was in Iona that Cadell lived his fuller life as an artist. And it is his work there that the Scottish colour-tradition label may be most fittingly applied… It is in these that one sees a response to the essential qualities.’


T.J. Honeyman, Three Scottish Colourists, Edinburgh, 1950, p.90
