F.C.B. Cadell was born in Edinburgh, where he lived for most of his life, and studied in Paris and Munich. This book illustrates many of the works for which Cadell is celebrated, including stylish portrayals of Edinburgh New Town interiors, vibrantly coloured, daringly simplified still lives of the 1920s, and evocative landscapes of the Scottish west coast and the south of France. Based on new research, a special section concentrates on Cadell's relationship with Iona, where he painted nearly every year from 1912 until 1935. The book accompanies a major exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, the first retrospective exhibition of Cadell's work held at a public gallery since 1942.
