William (1913) Scott Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Illustrator, Still life painter, b. 1913 - d. 1989

Artist William Scott, born in Scotland in 1913, was an abstract artist whose paintings exhibited these characteristics while often retaining enough form to be recognizable. Scott believed the subjects of his painting were, in themselves, unimportant, merely forming the basis of a picture that represented space, form, and color. Painter William Scott studied at the Belfast School of Art and the London Royal Academy of Art. Thereafter, he lived and worked in various locations including Cornwall, Pont-Aven, Dublin, and London.

Artist Scott's work was greatly influenced by the geometric style of Swiss painter Paul Klee, and the stylistic representations of French artist Georges Braque. William Scott abstract paintings for sale include his well-known artworks of pots and pans, figural representations of people, as well as completely abstract paintings.

Provenance: Gallery Moos, Toronto; Sotheby's, London, 7 May 2009, lot 58; Private collection Exhibited: 'W. Scott Memorial Exhibition', Anderson Gallery, Buffalo, 26 September to 31 October 1992, catalogue no. 29 The present work is listed in the William Scott Archive as no. 1569. William Scott is internationally recognised as one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century. Born in Greenock in Scotland, he later moved to his father's native Enniskillen; he studied art initially in Northern Ireland, then in London. He lived for a time in mainland Europe until the outbreak of the second World War. Scott's work addressed a range of themes, but he is best known for his ground-breaking approach to still life where he combined his response to familiar domestic objects, like cooking utensils and foodstuffs, drawing on the abstract possibilities of their profiles. Objects were projected both individually and in their relationships to each other; sometimes represented like musical notes - harmonious or discordant - ranged across the surface of the canvas. They could appear outlined or profiled as complete forms, or cut-off as though the array continued beyond the picture plane. Scott chose the forms of common, mundane, familiar domestic objects; his appreciation of their simple abstracted beauty made their very ordinariness compelling, a strategy that ran counter to the long tradition of valuing the rare exclusivity of high craftsmanship of rich materials. Scott's appreciation of the ordinary was fundamental to Modernism, to an egalitarian accessibility and ubiquity. Abstraction is recognised as a defining element of Modernist imagery and Scott evolved his objects from a relatively naturalistic representation, becoming increasingly stylised, until the full abstraction of his Berlin Blues series in the 1960s. However, he regularly returned to objects in the tangible world. In the 1970s, Scott carried out several paintings and works on paper that explored the potential of the pear, typically with its projecting stalk. While various fruit forms appear in his work from time to time, the pear provided a particular focus. The resulting series examined the profile and the formal relationships, either singly or in groups. In some artworks the object appeared in outline, and in others, it was presented as a dense flat form, as in One Pear. In some images, Scott presented the forms as though floating against a monochromatic ground, while in others, such as One Pear, the entity is framed as though displayed on a plate. Scott alluded to his preference for manufactured over natural objects, and while the pear might be deemed a natural object, its distillation to a two-dimensional shape, and presentation within a linear 'frame', removes it decisively from a naturalistic setting. Scott's deceptively simple arrays are visually compelling, their arrangement and form demonstrating the relationship of positive and negative space. Such imagery distinguishes abstraction from description, and gives the forms a kind of ritualistic value that both depends on, and separates them from, their mundane origins.

This is a printer's proof from the early 1970s, before the image was released in a wider lithographic edition in 1975, printed by Curwen Studio, published for PSA Supplies Division by Edition Alecto Ltd, as a commission by the Department of the Environment, who issued it internally within government departments. As a gift, it is possible that the work was signed and dated at a later point.

Provenance: Gimpel Fils Gallery, London; Archeus Fine Art, London; Private collection; Whyte's, 28 November 2006, lot 35; Private collection Exhibited: 'William Scott', Gimpel and Weitzenhoffer, New York, 26 April to 28 May 1983 This work is registered in the William Scott Archive as number CR921. We are grateful to the William Scott Archive for their assistance in cataloguing this work. William Scott was born in Scotland in 1913. His father, a sign-writer and house painter, was Irish and from Enniskillen; his mother Scottish. The family moved back to Enniskillen in 1924 to find a better standard of living. Showing a keen interest in art William was sent to study with Kathleen Bridle who introduced him to watercolour painting and the French tradition in art. In 1928 he attended the Belfast College of Art and in 1931 studied at the Royal Academy Schools in London. He went on to become one of few Irish artists (although Scotland can claim him also) in the post World War II period to establish a national and indeed international reputation as an abstract or semi-abstract painter. His development as an artist followed the early Modernist pathway of moving from Naturalism towards a spare and poetic abstraction but without relinquishing the imprint of the original naturalistic or man made source. The French Modernist tradition of Cézanne, Bonnard and Braque was a potent early source of influence. He lived in France for periods in Cagnes-Sur-Mer and St Tropez in the south and at Pont Aven in the north. The wall paintings at Lascaux, which he visited in 1954, made a lasting impact. His consistent subject matters of kitchen table still lifes and the nude female figure he worked at and distilled to an emotional and erotic essence of line, colour, shape and texture. If his cottage still lifes left their first marks on a Scottish or Ulster table, his later ones still bore their imprint. In a memorial poem to the artist, Brendan Kennelly registers their impact: Hardly an outdoors man: Flickering candle, domestic gold, Bottle, basin, pot, pan: Slowly the shapes take hold. And will not be forgotten. Eggs, lemons, grapes, pears: The man walks through the kitchen, Wanders among the stars.1 The development of his work progressed towards less and less pictorial elements (a fish, a plate, a glass). The former supporting table top, tilted á la Cezanne, now becomes the vertical pictorial ‘field’ or working ‘ground’ and his gift for placement and structural balance becomes even more assured, simple and eloquent. Of his move from the representation of objects in space to the orchestration of objects and space he has commented: “My problem was to reduce the immediacy of the individual object and to make a synthesis of ‘objects and space’ so that the new conception would be the expression of one thing and not any longer a collection of loosely related objects”.2 In 1953 Scott visited New York and met Jackson Pollock and Marc Rothko among others. He was impressed by the scale and self assuredness of their work but the visit for him reinforced his Europeanism. In 1965 William Scott moved to a farmhouse near Coleford in England where there was an espaliered pear tree. He had, of course, painted pears earlier in his career e.g. Pears on a Plate, 1956/60. Now he had a constant source at hand and pears became something of a sub theme in his work. In Pears and Knife II, 1973, three pear shapes share a kind of musical notation with a plate, a knife and a glass registering a graphic and visual assonance. In 1976 he painted a series of seventeen small canvasses, entitled the ‘Orchard Series’ where the fruit sit like roosting birds painted mostly in varying shades of green and in varying dispositions. They evoke a primitive and erotic charge. Jug and Pear, 1983, was painted in the last years of his working life before he developed Alzheimer’s disease in 1986. He died in 1989. It shows the influence of Egyptian wall painting in the flattening out of the pear and jug, allowing their outlines to do all the work. It gains its power despite its scale, from the simplicity and humour of the relationship between the two pictorial protagonists. The jug squared off and stand-offish ignores, as it were, the shapely presence of the pear in this painterly drama. William Scott’s work is represented in many national and international collections. He has represented Britain in a group exhibition at the São Paulo Bienal (1953) and with a solo exhibition at the Venice Biennale (1958). He also has been included in Documenta, Kassel, Germany (1959) and Rosc, Dublin (1980). In 1986 a large retrospective of his paintings and drawings toured Ireland and Scotland and a major exhibition of his work was shown at IMMA in 1998. Numerous exhibitions of William Scott's work continue to take place nationally and internationally, most recently from October to December 2019 in New York at the Anita Rogers Gallery titled William Scott: Paintings and Drawings; Fifties through Eighties.

            Pencil and gouache. Signed and dated 'W. SCOTT 74' (upper left). With original William Scott: Drawings publication. William Scott CBE RA (British, 1913 – 1989) Born 15 February 1913 in Greenock Scotland, William Scott was raised in his father’s hometown of Enniskillen in Northern Ireland from the age of eleven. Scott enrolled at the Belfast School of Art in 1928, where he began his career as a celebrated abstract painter known for his still lifes, landscapes, and female nudes. In 1942, Scott joined the Royal Army Ordnance Corps and later served with the Royal Engineers as a lithographic draughtsman. Throughout his service, he continued to paint and exhibit at both solo and group shows. Upon discharge from the army in 1946, Scott became Senior Painting Master at the Bath Academy of Art, where he would teach for the next ten years, during which time he associated with artists from the St. Ives group and American abstract expressionists. Though Scott left full-time teaching in 1956, he remained involved in art school education for the remainder of his life. In the 1960s and 70s, Scott’s work was exhibited all over the world, including retrospectives in Zurich, Hannover, and his home province of Ulster in Northern Ireland. In 1966, he was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire and received honorary doctorates from the Royal College of Art in London, Queen’s University Belfast, and Trinity College Dublin. On 28 December 1989, Scott died at his home in Somerset. Scott’s work has been shown posthumously at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in 1998 and at The Verey Gallery, Eton College in 2016.
