John Scott (American, b.20th Century)
John T. Scott was born on a farm in Gentilly, a well known section in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1940. Throughout his many years of life, until his death in 2007, Scott did some remarkable things in the world of art, including being a painter, printmaker, collagist and sculptor. But he is perhaps best known as being a prominent sculptor in his 67 years of life.
Scott was known for his vibrant abstract pieces, and his art is displayed throughout many prominent locations. One of these such locations includes his alma matter and a place he spent several years teaching, Xavier University of Louisiana. His sculpture, Ancestral Legacy, is proudly displayed in the courtyard of this campus.
John T. Scott had a love for art and was inspired to share his knowledge through mentoring fellow artists. His works have also been featured at The New Orleans Museum of Art and The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, among many other notable places. Scott was awarded the prestigious MacArthur Fellowship in 1992, and his works have received much praise over the years.
Shortly before the unfortunate circumstances of Hurricane Katrina hitting New Orleans, Scott fled to Houston, Texas. Throughout his life, he battled a disease known as pulmonary fibrosis, which caused him to have both of his lungs replaced. This eventually led to his death at the Methodist Hospital in Houston at the age of 67. John T. Scott is forever remembered as a stupendous artist.
