    This is likely to date from Fergusson?s first stay in Paris from 1907 until 1914 when he spent a lot of time in the south of France. In 1913, he persuaded his fellow Colourist Samuel John Peploe (1871-1935) to accompany him to Cassis. He recalled: `I had grown tired of the north of France; I wanted more sun, more colour; I wanted to go south to Cassis...... we had his [Peploe?s] birthday party there and, after a lot of consideration, chose a bottle of Ch?teau Lafitte instead of champagne. Ch?teau Lafitte to me now means that happy lunch on the veranda overlooking Cassis bay sparkling in the sunshine? (see Roger Billcliffe, The Scottish Colourists, 1990, p.37).

    Fergusson compulsively sketched on the streets of Paris. The Luxembourg Gardens in the 6th arrondissement contained the Palais de Luxembourg and were one of his favourite haunts. The lake was, and still is, popular as a place to sail model boats.
