Definition :
A clean book with unmarked pages, firm binding, no foxing, unsoiled, and that it is as close to new as possible but it is not brand new.
This publication provides the first assessment of Scott's work since his death - or rather reassessment, because Simon Morley's important new study looks afresh at Scott's work outside the framework of modernist theory, within which it has always been contained. It publishes for the first time many previously unseen works, including drawings, which represented an essential element of Scott's practice, one which he described as "exploring not explaining, containing geometry, sex, distortion and correction, forms pure and impure". Accompanying a major exhibition in the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, organized in association with the Scott Family, this publication discusses and illustrates in colour almost one hundred works by the artist, and also includes biographical details, artist's statements and contemporary reviews.
