Patrick Scott, b.1921

Autumnal Landscape1964

In 1960 Scott began using tempera on unprimed canvas, soaking, tilting and manipulating the plane of the support to achieve poured, dripped and pooling effects. His process was particularly inspired by the marshy landscape and glinting lakes of the midlands. ‘Autumnal Landscape’ palpably evokes the turning season, where green gives way to shades of gold and orange.

About the Artist

Patrick Scott 1921–2014

Patrick Scott is recognised as one of the first exponents of pure abstraction in Irish art and a significant contributor to the development of modernist design in Ireland. He was elected a Saoi of Aosdána in 2007. Retrospectives of his work were held at the Douglas Hyde Gallery (1982) and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane (2002) and a seminal 2014 exhibition ‘Patrick Scott: Image Space Light' which brought together the most comprehensive representation of this remarkable artist’s 75 year long career.
