The youngest of the four ‘Scottish Colourists’, Cadell first went to France in 1899 after a family friend, the watercolourist Arthur Melville, suggested he should attend art classes in Paris. He spent three years studying at the Académie Julian and absorbed much from both Post-Impressionism and Fauvism. By the time he visited Cassis, a small port and resort just east of Marseilles, he had developed a highly refined sense of colour with white often playing a major role both indoors and outside. He was at Cassis in 1923 and again (with fellow-Colourist Peploe) in 1924, the year in which works by all four Colourists were exhibited together in Paris for the first time, at the Galerie Barbazanges.
