Scope and content

Art records include one bound book with drawings laid down, dating ca. 1940-1950. Included on the pages are whimsical sketches of street scenes; portraits of F.R. Scott at the piano, reading and speaking at a C.C.F. convention; sketches of concert halls showing the audience and musicians; beach and lake sketches, several with people canoeing; a humourous portrait of Fritz Brandtner; and picnic and dinner scenes at North Hatley. A ring binder book also contains drawings with similar subject matter as well as plant sketches and images of dancers. A second ring binder book has manuscript research notes and sketches relating to Marian Scott's work with Hans Selye for a mural project at McGill University. Later works comprise studies for watercolours and are, primarily, variations on abstract patterns. Also included, but not numbered, are clippings that served as source material for Scott's watercolours. Works by other artists include a sketchbook containing twenty-one plant drawings by Peter Dale Scott, executed when he was a child and given as a gift to Marian Scott; and numerous artists' Christmas cards by such friends and colleagues as Fritz Brandtner and Rita Letendre. One notable loose work is a charming watercolour portrait, attributed to Marian Scott, showing Norman Bethune sick in bed, reading a book labelled "Marx". The series includes a self-portrait watercolour by Marian Scott.
