William Scott at The Hepworth

by Jon Cronshaw

To commemorate the centenary of his birth, a fascinating exhibition highlighting the work of pioneering abstract artist William Scott is currently on display at The Hepworth gallery, Wakefield.

Jon Cronshaw spoke to William Scott’s eldest son Robert Scott and the Head of Exhibitions at The Hepworth, Francis Guy, about the artist’s legacy.

On display in The Hepworth, in an archive showcase, is a photograph of an exhibition in New York from 1954 which has the work of Francis Bacon, Barbara Hepworth and William Scott being shown together with equal prominence.
