Notes: 

– “It is refreshing to turn aside from the garish highways of aggressive modernism to the quiet grove of James Scott’s productions. His work is the record of introspective attitude which reveres natures instead of exploiting her…His originality is of the unobtrusive sort which finds nourishment in quiet scenes of haunting beauty.” – Catherine Beach Ely in Modern tendency in American painting (1925) ;
