Catalogue Note

We are grateful to the William Scott Foundation for their kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work.



‘I am an abstract artist in the sense that I abstract. I cannot be called non-figurative while I am still interested in the modern magic of space, primitive sex forms, the sensual and erotic, disconcerting contours, the things of life.’  (William Scott, ‘Artist’s Statement’, published in Lawrence Alloway (ed.), Nine Abstract Artists: Their Work and Theory, Alec Tiranti Ltd., London, 1954, p.37.)
