Biography

Originally born Isaac Yaacov Oskotsky, Ian James Scott adopted his British name in 1946. He was considered one of the most established political cartoonists of the 20th century in Britain. After World War II he initially worked as a graphic artist and designer. In April 1960 Scott became the founder and first chairman (1960-69) of the Cartoonists’ Club, later renamed the British Cartoonists’ Club and finally the Cartoonists’ Club of Great Britain. In 2010, Scott died after a fall at his home in Eton.

One of his two younger brothers, Bernard (Ben), became a professional painter and he also had a younger sister. After attending the Raynes Foundation School Ian Scott studied at St Martin’s School of Art (1928–32) and at the Royal College of Art (1932–35), and began contributing cartoons and illustrations to the Daily Express and other publications while still a student. He then became a political cartoonist on the Daily Sketch and News Chronicle in the 1950s and the proprietor of the Kingleo Studios cartoon art agency.
