• William Scott: Still Life Made Oval
    William Scott, Dovecot Studios, Ken Gray
    Still Life Made Oval

In 2007, Dovecot approached the Estate of William Scott RA (1913-1989) to reignite a relationship that had been left dormant since the 1970s. With a view to producing a series of tapestries with Dovecot the William Scott Foundation invited Master Weaver Douglas Grierson to select three works he felt would be translated most effectively by the weaving team.

This particular image of Still Life Made Oval is a woven interpretation of Scott’s painting from 1974; the familiar abstracted objects from around Scott’s studio are depicted including a pan, vessel or cup on an oval ground.

In respect of Scott’s struggle with Alzheimer’s, 15% of the net sale of this tapestry goes to the Alzheimer’s Society research projects sponsored by the William Scott Foundation.
