William Scott CBE, RA (1913-1989), acclaimed British artist of the Post-war generation was, together with Peter Lanyon and Patrick Heron, considered one of the giants of the Modernist movement in the UK. Patrick Heron, who also doubled as ‘one of the finest art critics of the century’, wrote perceptively of Scott’s work. ‘It is the sensation of space and depth in a painted flatness,’ he explained in 1953, ‘that inspires much contemporary painting. Scott is a brilliant exponent of it.’
This exhibition aims to highlight a selection of works from the artist’s mid to late career, and introduce, or in some cases re-introduce, the artist to the New York public. The exhibition will feature work from the early 1950s through the 1980s, including abstract work as well as his domestic still-life’s. Images from his iconic Poem for a Jug and Orchard of Pears series are included.
