About the artist
About the artwork
This picture, painted in 1960-1961, clearly relates to Scott’s other paintings of the period, including Ochre Still Life, 1958 (also available as a Tate custom print). The flattened shapes of kitchen utensils are more abstract in this work, while the surface of the canvas resembles a plaster wall. Scott has also referred to the possible influence of Egyptian art – something he was inspired by at the time he produced the painting.

About the artist
An internationally acclaimed painter modern painter, William Scott was born in 1913 in Greenock, Scotland. His powerful handling of paint extended over still life, landscape and nude genres. He is best known for his still life paintings of everyday objects – saucepans, eggs and bottles – in domestic settings. In the 1950s his work became more erotically charged, morphing into complete abstraction in the mid- 50s. He continued to alternate between abstraction and a more representative style throughout his career, pushing the boundaries of each. His work has an enduring human quality that confronts complexity and emotion through compositions of deliberate and measured simplicity.
