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.
