J. D. Fergusson (1874-1961) is one of the four artists known as the Scottish Colourists, the others being F.

C. B. Cadell, G. L. Hunter and S. J. Peploe. Fergusson was born in Leith, and was essentially a self-taught artist.

In Paris 1907 he became involved with the avant-garde scene and exhibited at the progressive Salon d'Automne.

More than any of his Scottish contemporaries, Fergusson assimilated and developed the latest developments in French painting.

In 1913 Fergusson met the dance pioneer Margaret Morris (1891-1980).

Morris's creative dance movements and her students continued to be one of Fergusson's main sources of inspiration and models.

In 1929 Fergusson returned to Paris where he was involved with the Anglo-American art circles.

Most summers were spent in the south of France where Morris held her celebrated Summer Schools.

The couple moved to Glasgow in 1939 being founder members of the New Art Club and of its off-shoot the New Scottish Group.

This book reasserts the artist's place at the forefront of British modernism.
