Peploe's Coffee Pot smashes Vettriano's record for Scottish art

A painting Still Life with Coffee Pot has broken the record price for Scottish art.
Scottish Colourist Samuel John Peploe’s painting fetched nearly £1 million,  breaking the record set seven years ago by Jack Vettriano with his famous The Singing Butler.
The painting was sold yesterday to a UK private collector at Christie’s in London.
Christie’s British and Scottish pictures expert Andre Zlattinger said: “It’s a masterpiece by him, a fabulous picture, and a great result.”
The price for the 1905 painting, including the buyer’s premium, was £937,250. The previous record for a work by Peploe was £623,650 for Tulips, sold by Sotheby’s in London last year. The Peploe was painted in 1905 while he was still under the influence of Manet and before he became obsessed with bright colour, was a still life with silver coffee pot, which sold for a record £937,250 to art adviser Susannah Pollen. Record prices for L S Lowry and Stanley Spencer claimed the headlines of last week’s 20th-century British Art auctions in London as Christie’s posted the highest ever total for a sale in that category – £17.9 million. A collector bought LS Lowry’s The Football Match (1947) for £5.6 million
