Marking the centenary of the artist's birth is a display of works that covers all aspects of his distinguished career.

William Scott, Robert, 1947

Bath's most famous painter since Gainsborough, William Scott lived in the area for most of his life, first at Elm Tree Cottage in Hallatrow and later at Bennetts Hill Farm in Coleford.

The exhibition features paintings, sculptures and drawings that shed light on his close connections with the city, including the ten years he spent as the senior painting master at Bath Academy of Art.
