(1815 - 1907)

John White Allen Scott (1815-1907) or John W.A. Scott was an artist in Boston, Massachusetts, in the 19th century.[1][2] He worked for Pendleton's Lithography early in his career. In the 1840s he started a lithography business in partnership with Fitz Hugh Lane ("Lane & Scott's Lithography").[3][4] Around 1852 he kept a studio in Boston's Tremont Temple.[5] Scott's work sold well; for instance in 1855 he "sold more than 50 landscapes at auction."[6] He belonged to the New England Art Union[7] and the Boston Art Club.[8]
