St Ives: Connecting Circles

William Scott, Pale Linear Still Life, 1975
31 July – 31 October 2021

The small Cornish harbour town of St Ives has always attracted artists because of its exceptional light and dramatic surrounding countryside.

William Scott Event at the Anita Rogers Gallery

Black, Yellow and White Composition, 1953

Oil on canvas
101.8 × 127.3 cm / 40 × 50 in

Undated, it was one of the paintings Scott showed at the São Paulo Bienal that opened in September 1953.
