This summer, we are taking the opportunity to showcase around 29 of our key works by Peploe at St Andrews Museum while their usual home - Kirkcaldy Museum & Art Gallery - is closed for refurbishment.
Most of Fife Council's collection of 44 Peploes was purchased in 1964 from the estate of JW Blyth, a Kirkcaldy linen manufacturer and keen art collector. After his death, his family sold a large part of his collection to Kirkcaldy Town Council.
Blyth wrote in the catalogue for Peploe's Memorial Exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy in 1936: "Peploe was a great man, his pictures are the ardent outpourings of a great heart and a great mind - to live with them is sheer delight..."
