Patrick Scott, 1921–2014

Rosc Diptych1967

For the past forty-seven years Rosc Diptych has remained in Scott’s studio. Its motif is a replica of Small Rosc Symbol (1967) the motif he designed for the cover of the Rosc 67 catalogue. In Rosc Diptych the colours of Small Rosc Symbol are inverted and the motif is displayed in a repeating pattern. Scott donated the diptych to IMMA in 2008. It is a prime example of Scott’s unique fusion of art and design.

About the Artist

Patrick Scott 1921–2014

Patrick Scott is considered 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 in 1982, and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane in 2002 and 2014 when the exhibition ‘Patrick Scott: Image Space Light' brought together the most comprehensive representation of his 75 year long career.
