After visiting a Scott show in London in 1953, James Johnson Sweeney, then director of the Guggenheim, wrote to the gallerist Martha Jackson: “At last England has a painter.” That same year Scott became one of the first British artists to visit New York, where Martha Jackson introduced him to Rothko, De Kooning, Kline, and Pollock. The following year, Scott, with Hepworth and Bacon, took part in a three-person show at the MJ Gallery going on to exhibit with Jackson regularly through the next decade. The influence of Rothko was particularly strong, and in 1959 the Rothko family visited the Scott’s at their cottage in England. Rothko had just finished his Seagram paintings while Scott was working on his Altnagelvin mural; both artists discussed the issues and problems of where and how an artist can best show his work.

Oleg Vassiliev, along with Erik Bulatov and Ilya Kabakov, was a leader of Moscow’s Conceptual School. According to the well-known critic and curator, Joseph Backstein, the artist is “represented by key works that enable one to see how the Conceptual School deconstructed not only the ‘Soviet’ picture, but painting as a whole.” His contributions to the recognition of “Russian art” becoming “International art” are significant. He left Russia in the late 1980s for a move to New York where he began exhibiting with Phyllis Kind Gallery in SoHo. Today, his paintings are in museum and private collections worldwide. Buchanan, J.
