17021770, Oct 12
a British landscape painter known for his riverside scenes and seascapes. Scott was born in London, and began painting in around 1720. Nothing is known of his artistic training. He started as a maritime artist, painting men-of-war and other ships on calm seas in the style of Willem van de Velde, many of whose drawings he owned. He also painted a set of six pictures of settlements owned by the East India Company in collaboration with George Lambert. Scott painted the ships, Lambert the buildings and landscape. He was one of the early draughtsmen in watercolours, and was called the father of English watercolour, but his chief works were in oil.
