Wonderfully fluid and economical handling of this table setting subject by Scottish painter Samuel Peploe. It carries a feeling of the still life work of Manet, who was likely an influence.

  1. Thanks Charley. Not familiar with this artist. I added this painting to my Google Art Project collection.

    Looking at his later works, he seemed to abandon the calligraphic brush work for a more flat, studied, cubist direction.
