Marian Scott's usual effervescence is revealed in the layers of forest green paint of “Facade No. 4.” A wall of abstracted figures confronts the viewer with playful nonconformity. Scott gradually moved to abstraction from landscapes and cityscapes, developing her oeuvre with intellectualism and high ideals. Scott studied under William Brymner at the École des Beaux-Arts in Montreal, under Henry Tonks at the Slade School of Art in London, England, and was a member of the Canadian Group of Painters. Another version of this work, “Facade No. 6” currently resides in the National Gallery of Canada.

Marian Mildred Dale Scott
(1906 - 1993) Canadian Group of Painters, RCA

Born Marian Mildred Dale in Montreal, Quebec in 1906, Dale Scott began her artistic training at age eleven at the Art Association of Montreal. She then attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Montreal for three years and continued her training at the Slade School in London, England.

Dale Scott explored a wide range of subjects including landscapes, urban scenes, the human form, botanicals, and geometric abstraction as her career progressed. Her approach was also varied, stressing structure and organization, and then impulsive and gestural.
