Abstract:
David Scott (1806-1849) recorded his developing religious and aesthetic philosophies in private notes and in published essays, and his aesthetic ideal is exemplified in works expressing metaphysical aspects of man. Comparison of his purely imaginative works on paper with some of the exhibited history paintings - inspired by the Bible, classical sources and literature - reveals enduring themes and motifs and the consistent application of the central concepts of his aesthetic philosophy from an early age.
