Announcement from the Irish Museum of Modern Art

The Irish Museum of Modern Art is very sad to announce the death of the great Irish artist Patrick Scott today (Friday 14 February 2014) on behalf of Eric Pearce, partner of Patrick Scott, and the family of Patrick Scott.

The Chairman, Board, Director and staff of IMMA extend their deepest condolences to Eric Pearce and the family of Patrick Scott. Patrick Scott has been a defining figure of Irish art for over 70 years and the retrospective exhibition due to open tomorrow (Saturday 15 February) is testament to his extraordinary career, life and achievements as an artist. He will be sorely missed by the arts community and IMMA is honoured to pay tribute to one of Ireland’s most important artists with this major exhibition on which Patrick Scott worked closely with the curator Christina Kennedy, Head of Collections, IMMA.

It is Eric Pearce and the family’s wish that the launch of the exhibition Patrick Scott:  Image Space Light proceeds as planned tomorrow afternoon, at 3.30pm, as a celebration of Patrick Scott’s life and work.
