      Though William Scott was born in Scotland he actually trained in Belfast and the Royal Academy in London. He then lived in France for awhile in the 1930s. When the 2nd World War came he served in the Royal Engineers. Around this time he learned lithography.

      At 40, he went to the US where he met Pollock, Kline and Rothko; their influence on his work was that it became more abstract.

      Between 1958-61, he painted a mural for Londonderry Hospital.

      In 1966 he was awarded the C.B.E..
