"Tea Clipper In High Seas" by Henry Scott

$9,800Asking Price


The tea clipper silver eagle oil on canvas by British artist Henry Scott. Painting measures: 24" x 36" and with frame 30" x 42". In excellent condition signed lower right. Henry Scott was a painter of marines and coastal subjects strongly associated with the Royal Society of Artists. As well as painting lucrative shipping portraits for some of his wealthy clientele, he also executed a number of works of British and American clippers. The works of Henry Scott have often been confused with those of Montague Dawson. Scott works in a similar way to that of Dawson and captures a wonderful freshness and feel of immediacy. Henry Scott’s palette is striking, with all surfaces and elements observed, capturing every movement in full flow. His sails are nearly always bellowed with a good stiff breeze which is further emphasized by the spray of the water being wisped across the top of the choppy seas. Particularly notable are his skies which move the subject, helping the canvas to feel alive. In 1970 Henry Scott was commissioned to paint “Morning Cloud” which was skippered and owned by the then Prime Minister, The Right Honorable Edward Heath P.C., M.B.E., M.P. Henry Scott exhibited at the Society of Marine Artists, The Royal Exchange, London, The Guildhall, London and the Royal Academy, London. He also exhibited at the St. Malo Museum, France and at Madison Square in New York. Henry Scott was honored as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and awarded an honorary Life Member ‘Cape Homers’ by the International Association of Master Mariners.
