Robbie Duff Scott

Robbie Duff-Scott was born in the UK in 1959 and was educated at Clifton College, Bristol and the York University where he studied English, French and American literature. It was while at university that he returned to his love of drawing. He lived in Italy from 1984 and in his lifetime established a reptutation there as an important proponent of the tradition of European figurative painting. His work speaks of ‘flesh and melancholy’ and has the recurring themes of the obscure desire for flight and the inevitability of falling.
Apart from an obvious debt to Caravaggio, Duff-Scott’s influences included the singer Tom Waits, the poetry of Charles Baudelaire and the music of legendary blues singer Robert Johnson. He settled permanently in Umbria in 1989 and lived and worked in Umbertide.
