The J.G. Scott Collection

A catalogue to accompany The J.G. Scott Collection exhibition, August 2021.

We are delighted to host The J.G. Scott Collection as part of our 2021 Festival exhibition programme. J.G. Scott (1930 – 2019) was a great friend to The Gallery whose diverse collection of paintings and prints reflects the taste of an individual that changed and developed over a lifetime of looking and enjoying art. The landscape of Scotland is well represented with both topographical and expressionist examples from William Daniel, Joan Eardley, Geoff Uglow and Sir William Gillies. He responded to the New Wave Glasgow painters like Howson and Conroy in the mid-eighties and felt kinship with the expressionist Joseph Urie and the damaged genius Ian Hughes. Included are abstract compositions by Alan Davie and Antoni Tapies, as well as joyous colourful examples by John Bellany, Alberto Morrocco and Sir William MacTaggart. Within the exhibition we can find many subjects and different artistic voices and can deduce this his collection was a resting place for his intellect through which we can certainly know the man and appreciate his individual collector's eye.
