Note: Alexander Hamilton Scott studied at Paisley School of Art and went on to become an architect. However, he continued to study painting at the Glasgow & West of Scotland Technical College and Glasgow School of Art 1897-1900 and again in 1902-03. “The Red Parasol 1928” almost certainly depicts a beach somewhere on the West coast of Scotland and shows the very strong influence of the Scottish Colourists, particularly Cadell, Peploe and Maclauchlan Milne. His paintings are rare and few have appeared at auction.
