So here I am on a flying visit to Scotland and Perth thinking what a nice break from all things Chinese and Chinois. However, a visit to the city’s Fergusson Gallery brings me face to face with Le Manteau Chinois, (1909) by J.D. Fergusson. John Duncan Fergusson (1874-1961) was a major Scottish colourist originally from Leith. I know he travelled as far North Africa but don’t think he ever got to China. He did spend a lot of time in London and Paris where Chinoiserie was a major trend. More on Fergusson here.
