Born 1913 – Died 1989
Scott was born in Greenock, Scotland. After training at the Belfast School of Art, in 1932 he moved to London to study at the Royal Academy. While in the city, he became associated with Abstract Expressionism. After war service he moved to Somerset, but kept in touch with those artists who were developing an abstract style in St. Ives, notably Heron, Lanyon and Hilton. From the mid-1950s he received many large-scale commissions. These, together with influences from North America, further developed the abstract side of his art.
