A term first used in 1948 to describe the work of four Scottish painters, F. C. B. Cadell, Leslie Hunter, S. J. People, and J. D. Fergusson, who spent time in France in the early 20th century and were strongly influenced by the freedom of handling and bold use of colour found in French painting from Manet to Fauvism.
