Denis Peploe (1914-1993)

Denis Peploe (1914-1993) was born in Edinburgh, the son of the Scottish Colourist, Samuel John Peploe. As a child he used to accompany his father on his painting trips in the West Highlands and clean his brushes. Against his father's wishes he attended Edinburgh College of Art and became a painter. Although he also worked on still life and figure painting, he was primarily a landscape artist, working in Spain and the Scottish Highlands.
