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.
The auctioneer’s British and Scottish pictures expert Andre Zlattinger said: “It’s a masterpiece by him, a fabulous picture, and a great result.”
