Lot 66: Sir Peter Scott (1908-1989)

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Curlew's Early-Arthur Ackermann & Son, Ltd., London label on back Sir Peter Scott was described by David Attenborough as the "patron saint" of conservation in the UK. He founded the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, co-founded the World Wildlife Fund, and designed its iconic Panda logo. As the son of Antarctic explorer Robert Falcon Scott, Sir Peter continued in his father's footsteps by conducting an expedition to Iceland in search of the breeding ground of the Pink-foot goose. In 1975, Scott gave a scientific name to the Loch Ness Monster so it could be registered as an endangered species, which turned out to be an anagram of "Monster Hoax by Sir Peter S." He was the host of a BBC television series on natural history, and wrote and illustrated many books on birds and other subjects. He won a bronze medal in sailing at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. In addition to these many pursuits, Sir Peter Scott had his first art exhibition in London in 1933 and continued to paint throughout his life.

Jane Fenton writes - "Watching a dawn flight of geese in the Fens which Peter Scott loved to do both as a wildfowler when at the University of Cambridge and later as an artist/wildlife conservationist. He famously put down his guns after wounding a goose far out on the mudflats which could not be reached and put out of its misery. The present scene is almost certainly behind one of the long banks up in Cambridgeshire or Norfolk where he used to shoot from during his Cambridge days".

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Sir Peter Markham Scott, CH (British, 1909-1989) Portrait of HRH The Princess Margaret , Countess of Snowdon (1930-2002) pencil on plasticowell h:29 w: 23 cm Literature: Portrait Drawings by Sir Peter Scott, published by Country Life in 1949, illus. Other Notes: Plasticowell film was the invention of the printer W. S. Cowell. These transparent plastic sheets were born out of necessity, to make up for metal shortages after the Second World War, but they were seized upon by a generation of British artists, including Henry Moore and John Piper, because of their flexibility and practicality. As the sheets were transparent, the artist, who drew each colour on a separate sheet, could easily get the colour registration exactly as they wanted. When the drawings were transferred from the plasticowell to specially-prepared zinc plates for printing, the artist could also work the right way round, rather than back to front as when drawing a lithograph directly onto zinc or stone.

Condition Report: Unframed, and with small piece top left hand corner missing.

The following day she was rung up by Scott's secretary who said that the two paintings that she had bought should not have been sold and Scott would like them back, and would paint her a replica. She apparently said that as Sir Peter had not telephoned her himself, she would not consider it ! Private collection, UK. Other Notes: Peter Scott was born in London, the only child of Antarctic explorer Robert Falcon Scott and sculptor Kathleen Bruce. He was only two years old when his father died. Robert Scott, in a last letter to his wife, advised her to "make the boy interested in natural history if you can; it is better than games." Scott was named after Sir Clements Markham, mentor of Scott's polar expeditions, and his godfather was J. M. Barrie, creator of Peter Pan. He was educated at Oundle School and Trinity College, Cambridge, initially reading Natural Sciences but graduating in the History of Art in 1931. Like his mother, he displayed a strong artistic talent and had his first exhibition in London in 1933. His wealthy background allowed him to follow his interests in art, wildlife and many sports, including sailing and ice skating.

Condition Report: Slightly dirty but fine.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: § Sir Peter Markham Scott, CH, CBE, DSC, PSWA, PNAT (British, 1909-1989) Portrait of Miss Elizabeth Jane Howard as Fritha, holding the Snow Goose signed lower right 'Peter Scott 1946" and lower left "Rhayader '34" oil on canvas h:74 w:50 cm Provenance: Bought by the vendor's aunt from a London gallery shortly after the war. The following day she was rung up by Scott's secretary who said that the two paintings that she had bought should not have been sold and Scott would like them back, and would paint her a replica. She apparently said that as Sir Peter had not telephoned her himself, she would not consider it ! Literature: The Snow Goose, Paul Gallico, illustrated by Sir Peter Scott, first illustrated edition, 1946 (illus. frontispiece) Slipstream, Elizabeth Jane Howard, pub. 2002, p.183, "We sailed in the Aquitania, with four hundred GI brides ... Pete, who was illustrating Paul Gallico's The Snow Goose, searched the ship for a suitable model for Fritha, but with the general prostration and the fact that the brides were unexpectedly a series of "no oil paintings", he had to fall back on me. I stood for hours, holding a pillow, which he turned into the wounded snow goose". Other Notes: This is the original illustration for the fly leaf of the first illustrated edition of the Snow Goose by Paul Gallico, illus. by Sir Peter Scott, pub. 1946. The present painting is a portrait of Fritha with the Snow Goose, which according to the story is the only painting by Rhayader saved from destruction at the end of the tale, the Snow Goose. Fritha is portrayed in the portrait by Elizabeth Jane Howard, Sir Peter Scott's first wife, and was painted on the deck of the Aquitania on a crossing to New York, whilst Elizabeth Jane clutched a pillow, to depict the snow goose. Peter Scott's Lighthouse on the Nene Cut, was in part inspiration for Paul Gallico's The Snow Goose, for which Peter Scott did the original illustrations. The Snow Goose is a simple, short written parable on the regenerative power of friendship and love, set against a backdrop of the horror of war. It documents the growth of a friendship between Philip Rhayader, an artist living a solitary life in an abandoned lighthouse in the marshlands of wartime Essex because of his disabilities, and a young local girl, Fritha. The Snow Goose, symbolic of both Rhayader (Gallico) and the world itself, wounded by gunshot and many miles from home, is found by Fritha and, as the human friendship blossoms, the bird is nursed back to flight, and revisits the lighthouse in its migration for several years, as Fritha grows up. Rhayader and his small sailboat eventually are lost in the British retreat from Dunkirk, having saved several hundred men. The bird, which was with Rhayader, returns briefly to the grown Fritha on the marshes. She interprets this as Rhayader's soul taking farewell of her (and realizes she had come to love him). Afterwards, a German pilot destroys Rhayader's lighthouse and all of his work, except for one portrait Fritha saves after his death: a painting of her as Rhayader first saw her - a child, with the wounded snow goose in her arms.

Condition Report: Small areas of retouching in the costume, otherwise condition is good.
