William Scott and Doris Lee

We've always loved the paintings of William Scott and Doris Lee. For some reason, the other day, we had downloaded some images of each on the desktop and loved how they complimented one another. Although the American Lee stayed fairly representational and the British Scott's exploration of form became increasingly abstract, their composition and manipulation of line is spare and economical.
