Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell's 1920 painting Arum Lilies is a work that, in it's day, sparked a great deal debate among art-lovers. Submitted by Cadell for the annual 1920 Society of Eight, Arum Lilies caused a storm of debate over the overly vivid use of color in the composition proving that even deep into the twentieth-century still life paintings still had the power to shock. Famous for his Impressionistic reproduction of glamorous Scottish women, Cadell was an artist firmly attuned to his surroundings. Spending much of his life in his native Scotland he painted the landscapes which surrounded him and formed, with a likeminded group of artists, the Scottish Colourists. The group based their theories of color and composition on the works of the Post-Impressionists and were highly-lauded in the idealistic years of the 1920s and 1930s. Many of the Scottish Colourists went to France to train and took as their forerunner the landscape painter William McTaggart who was himself known as the "Scottish Impressionist".
Arum Lilies is a magnificent still life depicting lily flowers juxtaposed with a number of household objects of different textures and surfaces. Cadell's reproduction from life articulates the variety of contrasting, competing, and comparable textures, forging an immensely tactile still life. The coarse stems, the waxy texture of the fruit seems to animate the plainness of the white tablecloth, and all these divergent qualities come together to form a work of authority and visual power.
Cadell's Colourist innovations appealed to a new generation of artists who too were attempting to envision their own take on picturing Scottish identity. His Arum Lilies are testament to his ravenous appetite for new ways to depict textures and organisms through the dynamic power of color.

meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.
If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.
