William Edouard Scott 1884 - 1964 FISHERMEN signed W.E. Scott/Haiti (lower right) oil on panel 17 7/8 by 22 inches (45.4 by 55.9 cm) Provenance Private Collection, France Acquired by the present owner from the above Catalogue Note Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, William Edouard Scott was an African American artist who had an extremely successful and varied career. He moved to Chicago in 1904 to study at the Art Institute of Chicago during which time he was commissioned to paint murals in local schools. These works represent some of the earliest depictions of African Americans in public art and were the first of a number of murals Scott would paint throughout his life. He left Chicago for Paris in 1909 where he studied with and was greatly influenced by Henry Ossawa Tanner through whom he met Hale Woodruff and other artists working abroad. Several years later Scott returned to attend classes at the Académies Julien and Colarossi. During this time he exhibited works at the Paris Salon and the Royal Academy in London. In 1914 Scott returned to America, traveling throughout the south in order to depict aspects of African American life. He also depicted African American soldiers during World War I. Scott was awarded a Julius Rosenwald Fellowship to work in Haiti and spent thirteen months on the island from 1931-32. Greatly inspired by the tropical scenery and local population, he produced over 100 paintings. Fisherman is a superb example of these works and demonstrates Scott’’’’’’’’s adoption of a brighter palette and more painterly approach. He exhibited all of his Haitian paintings in the capital at the end of his stay to great acclaim and 12 works were purchased by the nation’’’’’’’’s president. Upon his return to the States, Scott enrolled in the Federal Art Project and worked on murals for the Chicago Worlds Fair. His work is in the collections of the Tate Gallery, London, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. and Guggenheim Museum, New York among others.

Description: William Edouard Scott (American; 1884-1964) Haitian street scene oil on board signed lower left. Born in Indianapolis, William Edouard Scott attended Emmerich Manual High School where he was under the artistic tutelage of Otto Stark, one of Indiana's most prominent artists of the day. After graduation he would help Stark teach drawing to freshmen, thus becoming the first black person to teach in a public high school in Indianapolis. Enrollment at the Art Institute of Chicago led to mural commissions for several Chicago and Washington DC public schools. Like the majority of artists of the day, an art education was not considered complete until instruction had been taken in Europe. In 1909 and 1911 Scott traveled to France where he would be mentored by Henry Ossawa Tanner, one of the leading black American artists of the day. France was successful artistically for Scott and he returned to Indianapolis and commissions to paint murals in the city's public schools in 1912. The next two decades would be fruitful for Scott, having numerous exhibitions, and winning many awards and commissions. In 1931 Scott was awarded a fellowship to study in Haiti. Spending more than a year there, he painted over 144 works and was an inspiration to many local artists. Scott's short visit to this black republic was to have a long-lasting and profound effect on him and he would continue to draw on Haitian subject matter for many years to come. In Haiti, his preferred subjects were the common people and their everyday activities, dress, customs and lifestyles. One custom, popular with men, was the Sunday afternoon cockfight, and Scott would render this subject in both painting and mural form. By 1934 the U.S. troops that had been occupying the island since 1915 withdrew, therefore this undated mural was likely executed during Scott's stay from 1931-32.
