Henry Scott, British (1911-2005)
 
Specializing in ship portraits set within realistic atmospheres, Henry Scott also painted shipping portraits for wealthy clients and executed a number of works of British and Anmerican clippers.  During his career he made the acquaintance of many 19th & early 20th century sailing captains.  Earning their respect, he was made an honorary member of the International Association of Master Mariners.  This group is often referred to as "the Cape Horners".

Scott exhibited with the Royal Society of Marine Artist from 1950 to 1966.

His work is often likened to that of Montague Dawson.
