Paintings and Drawings
Fifties Through Eighties
October 16 – December 21, 2019
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 will be accompanied by a catalog, featuring an essay on Scott’s work by David Anfam, writer and curator of Abstract Expressionism (Royal Academy of Arts, London, 2016-17) – the largest survey of its kind ever held in Europe.
