Footnotes

  • Blue, Black and White Composition relates closely to a series of 'Composition' paintings that Scott executed in 1952/53. An impression of this print was exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 1954, the Cincinnati Biennial in 1954, and at Dartington Hall in 1955. We have found no record of this print being offered at auction before.
