The William Scott Archive is built around Scott’s personal & professional correspondence papers & documentary photographs which were collected & maintained over the years by his family. The William Scott Foundation is currently cataloguing this extensive collection.
The Archive includes a broad selection of catalogues & exhibition materials, black & white photographs, colour transparencies, press cuttings as well as family memorabilia & a collection of William Scott’s personal effects – including his brushes & paints, & a selection of objects used in his still-life arrangements.
Subsequent materials have been donated by contemporary artists’ estates, family friends, photographers, and museums.
Enquiries from curators, museums, scholars & those seeking permission to reproduce images are welcomed. At present, the Archive's primary concern is to serve as a research tool for the team who are researching & editing the definitive Catalogue Raisonné of William Scott’s works in oil, but assistance and resources will be made available to others where possible.
For archival assistance please make an application to Purwita Susanto stating name of institution, status of researcher, description of project and its potential use.
