Blue, Yellow and Red

William Scott

Scott was paintings master at the Bath Academy of Art in Corsham for fifteen years, before successfully exhibiting in America and representing Britain in the Venice Biennale in1958. His still life painting gradually moved from figurative renderings of familiar objects on a kitchen table - pots, pans, glasses, pears - to an informal, personal kind of abstraction whereby the curved forms of bowls, for example, are merely referred to in the sensual lines of his work.

Formerly in the collection of the Hirschorn Museum in Washington, this important work lies at the beginning of Scott's second phase of abstraction.
