Painter, poster designer and illustrator, born in Sunderland, County Durham, studying at the local School of Art, then the Royal College of Art. After working as an artist briefly in Sunderland and then for almost 40 years in London, around the start of World War II Scott settled in Brighton, Sussex. As well as poster designs, he illustrated for The Graphic and The Bystander. He was elected an associate of the RBA, 1919; ROI, 1920; and RI, 1927, also showing at RA Summer Exhibition, Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool and elsewhere. Scott’s work could be painterly in the manner of Sir John Lavery, Mark Senior and Edward Seago. Good examples are beach scenes done at Walberswick, a favourite spot for the artist, examples of which were included in the Spring 2003 exhibition at The Bourne Gallery, Reigate.
