This lavish volume includes work from all periods of William Scott’s work introduced and assessed by the art historian Norbert Lynton.Born in Scotland in 1913, William Scott first came to the public’s attention when he participated in the Arts Council’s exhibition at the 1951 Festival of Britain. In 1953 he visited Rothko, Pollock, de Kooning and others in New York, and began to exhibit there regularly. His work ranges from abstract paintings to increasingly rich still lifes with multiple levels of meaning.This account of William Scott and Scott’s art includes consideration of the artistic currents operating in western art during his time and is rooted in the author’s personal knowledge of the artist and the art world he inhabited, and has involved first-hand contact with his work around the world as well as full access to the Scott Archives.
