1950s Nude Drawing
Celebrated for exploring the space between abstraction and figuration, William Scott is best known for his painting of still lifes, landscapes and the female nude. On the occasion of the centenary of his birth, Karsten Schubert in London presented an exhibition of the artist’s nude drawings from the 1950s. A magnificent series of nearly abstract drawings, this group represents a period of exploration and refiguring for Scott. The works also exemplify his interest in “the modern magic of space, primitive sex forms, the sensual and erotic, disconcerting contours, the things of life.” Twelve drawings are accompanied by Sarah Whitfield’s insightful text plus an essay on drawing by the artist.
