Gerald William Scott
Born in Saint John, New Brunswick, 1926 - 2003
Gerald William Scott was one of Canada's foremost portrait painters and participated in shows at both The Roberts Gallery and The Greenwich Gallery, later renamed The Isaacs Gallery (Toronto). Although he created works in other styles, such as abstract expressionism, he was dedicated to portraiture and worked on commissions. His subjects included a Bermudan prime minister and a Baroness Rothschild.
Scott studied at the Ontario College of Art (1949) and won the Reeves Award for all-round technical proficiency in drawing and painting. He taught Art at OCA part-time from 1952 to 1958 and full-time beginning in 1963. He also taught colour tone studies, portrait and life painting at the prestigious Three Schools of Art in Toronto for about 25 years and later at the Forest Hill Art Club, both in Toronto. He was part of Toronto's Yorkville set in the 1960s. One of his acquaintances, Fred Varley of the Group of Seven, informally mentored him.
His works hung in the inaugural exhibition of Toronto's prominent Greenwich Gallery along with those of Michael Snow, Graham Coughtry and William Ronald and are found in the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto's Mount Sinai Hospital and numerous private collection around the world.
