New. This lavish volume includes works from all periods of William Scott's career--most reproduced in full color--introduced and assessed by the art historian Norbert Lynton, who was given full access to Scott's private archive by the William Scott Estate. Born in Scotland in 1913, William Scott was raised in Northern Ireland, the oldest boy in a family of eleven children. He trained at the Belfast College of Art and the Royal Academy Schools in London, and first came to the public's attention when he participated in the Arts Council's exhibition at the 1951 Festival of Britain. In 1953, he visited Rothko, Pollock, de Kooning, and others in New York, and began to exhibit there regularly. His work ranges from abstract paintings to ever-richer still lifes with multiple levels of meaning. Lynton's account of William Scott and his art is rooted in personal knowledge of the artist and the art world he inhabited and has involved firsthand contact with his work around the world, as well as consideration of the artistic currents in Western art during his time. 400+ illustrations in color and black and white.
