CORNWALL.- February 2013 marks the centenary of the birth of William Scott (1913–1989). Across a career spanning six decades, Scott produced an extraordinary body of work that has secured his reputation as one of the leading British painters of his generation. Exhibiting in America and Europe from the early 1950s, Scott is renowned for his powerful handling of paint in his exploration of still life, landscape and nude, and of the unstable boundaries between them. This is the first major showing of the artist in theUK for over 20 years.

To mark the achievements of this internationally acclaimed modern painter, Tate St Ives, in association with The Hepworth Wakefield, West Yorkshire and Ulster Museum, Belfast, opened an important retrospective exhibition. Beginning at Tate St Ives with a series of thematic rooms (focusing on Scott’s morphological shifts between genres and his preoccupation with ‘significant forms’) the exhibition will evolve as it travels to The Hepworth Wakefield, before expanding into a survey exhibition at Ulster Museum, Belfast. In collaboration with the William Scott Estate, which is currently finalising a catalogue raisonné of the artist’s paintings, the works have been drawn from major collections across the UK and Ireland.

The project is led by Sara Matson, Curator at Tate St Ives with Chris Stephens, Lead Curator of Modern British Art at Tate Britain, Frances Guy, Head of Collection & Exhibitions at The Hepworth Wakefield and Anne Stewart, Curator of Fine Art at the Ulster Museum.

A new book on William Scott by Sarah Whitfield is published by Tate to mark the centenary and exhibition. This will be followed by a catalogue of the exhibition produced in collaboration with the William Scott Foundation, encapsulating the tour, in its final manifestation in Belfast.
