This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A Southern California landscape artist, Clyde Eugene Scott was born in Bedford, Iowa and headed West in 1910, having studied in Boston with Richard Andrews and Charles Heil at the Boston Museum School and with E. Felton Brown at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Until 1933, he worked for the Commercial Art Company in San Francisco and lived across the Bay in Mill Valley.  Then he moved to Los Angeles and became a special effects artist at 20th Century Fox Studios until 1950 when he retired and devoted himself full time to painting desert landscapes.

He established his studio near Los Angeles at Chatsworth where landscape was often filmed for western movies.  He took extensive painting trips into Arizona and Utah and throughout California and became active in the California Art Club, plein-air landscape painters as well as in arts organizations in Laguna Beach and Santa Monica and the Painters and Sculptors of Los Angeles, which he served as President from 1938 to 1940.  He was fascinated by natural forms and changing atmosphere, and these subjects are reflected in his many desert landscapes.

Biography from William A. Karges Fine Art - Beverly Hills:
Born in Bedford, Iowa, in 1884, Clyde Scott studied art at the Boston Art School with Richard Andrews and E. Felton Brown, before moving to Mill Valley, California in 1910.  In California, Scott found a climate ideally suited to painting, and he was greatly inspired by the rugged,mountainous scenery he found.

Seeking work in the depression years, Scott moved to Los Angeles in 1930, finding employment at the film studio, 20th Century Fox.  Though he worked at Fox until 1953, Scott was painting prolifically and showing his works regularly, exhibiting in no fewer than 90 shows between 1929 and 1956.

In Scott's canvases, one sees an Arts & Crafts subtlety, perhaps due in part to his friendship in Boston with Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915), founder of Roycroft
Enterprises.  Scott's paintings show the artist's ability and desire to create balanced compositions using his subtle blend of basic elements such as silhouette, form, pattern and atmosphere.
