Fergusson, John Duncan (1874-1961) by Scholes, Robert

John Duncan Fergusson (1874 – 1961) He was the youngest of the group that came to be called (posthumously) the “Scottish Colourists.” Like the others, he had French training, and he painted there in the 1890s. He also settled in Paris around 1907. We believe he is the artist referred to favorably in as “John Duncan.” (Can’t expect the English to get these Scottish painters sorted out properly–even though they liked what they saw at the Royal Scottish Academy show in March of 1910. What they saw, of course, anticipated what London would see at the first post-impressionist show later that year.) The New Age (NA 6.22:525)
