John Duncan Fergusson Art Prints and Limited Edition Prints

About the artist: John Duncan Fergusson

John Duncan Fergusson was born in Leith, Edinburgh in 1874. He died in 1961 and is now regarded as one of the major artists of the Scottish Colourists school of painting. It has been said that the contribution made by Fergusson to Scottish art in the 20th Century is almost unsurpassed.

He studied at the Royal High School and then for a short period and then as a Naval Surgeon before deciding his real love was painting. Fergusson studied art at the Trustees Academy, an Edinburgh-based art school, but soon became disallusioned with the rigid teaching style. As a result he chose to teach himself to paint and began to travel to Morocco, Spain and France where he met other artists of the day. Amongst them was another SCottish artist, Samuel Peploe, who would later become known as one of the Scottish Colourists.

In 1898, John Duncan Fergusson made his first visit to Paris.He became highly influenced by the impressionist paintings at the Salle Caillebotte and these were to be an key influence on his developing art style. Later Fergusson also became influenced by Fauvism (the wild things) and the fauvist approach of deploying colour became a strong influence in his paintings. Fergusson became part of the explosion of artistic talent witnessed in Paris in the early 1900's. He networked with famous artists such as Matisse and Picasso in the café society for which Paris had become world renowned. He was also a friend of the famous Scottish artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

John Duncan Fergusson has remained popular since his death. His original art works now fetch substantial sums at auction and are t after by a world wide group of art collectors. A permanent gallery of Ferguson's work was founded in Perth in 1992.
