Lot Essay

Samuel Scott admired the paintings of Canaletto and that influence can be seen in the exactness of Scott's work, not only in his London views but also in his large-scale naval paintings. Painting from his studio in Covent Garden, he attracted many commissions through his social connections, but he was plagued greatly by sea-sickness, and thus did not make many sea voyages.
