SCOTT, Anne Page
SCOTT, Anna Page. (Dubuque, IA, 1863—Dubuque, IA, Oct. 13, 1925). A well-known American illustrator and painter, Scott attended local schools and then enrolled in the Art Institute of Chicago. After three years of study, she enrolled for a year of study at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia and then studied in Paris at the Colarossi Academy for a year and a half. Before returning to the United States in 1889, Scott painted for a year in Holland. (1)
In New York, Scott lived and worked as an illustrator and painter for eight years. She moved to Rochester, New York and lived then for sixteen years teaching art in the Mechanics’ Institute. She was a student of Anshutz and Arthur Dow as shown in her paintings of nature especially in her studies of trees. “The Shores of the Pacific,” has been displayed in the CARNEGIE-STOUT PUBLIC LIBRARY. (2)
Scott has been listed among the first American Impressionists who flourished from around 1890 to 1910. (3) Her contributions to art went beyond her own creations. Through writing, lecturing, and teaching, she promoted the necessity of having art in the home and not merely a luxury. (4)
