Francis Campbell de Boileau Cadell – Bunty to his friends – was the pipe-smoking bon viveur whose brilliantly hued oils and watercolours made him a leading light in the Scottish Colourist tradition. His lifework gets an extensive overhaul over at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art this month, an exhibition that includes a fascinating array of archival material from letters home whilst in hospital after the First World War to a concertina scrap book of childhood drawings collected by his mother. But by way of complement, and just around the corner from the New Town address where he spent much of his increasingly impecunious adult life, the Scottish Gallery mounts this diminutive tribute of works on paper, from ink and watercolours of Iona, where Cadell spent many summers, to the only known surviving examples of his work for Caledonian MacBrayne. Some of the work is on loan and some is owned by the Scottish Gallery, but there are a number of works from private collections for sale.
