"Self-Portrait" by Charles H. Scott
Who is this man? First I will give you my version and then I will do some research and get you the real story. There is a gallery on Granville Island named after him. Although born in Scotland, he spent most of his life in Vancouver – some of it in my neigbourhood. He painted in the 30’s and 40’s and has been gone for a while. He wasn’t in the group of seven but he definitely hung with some of them. I got this self-portrait off the Internet and hope it is of/by the Charles H. Scott I am talking about. I’m not sure if he had one eye or two? Let’s find out together.
