John White Allen Scott was a portrait, landscape, and marine painter, as well as a lithographer and engraver. He began his career as a lithographer with W.S. Pendleton in Boston. In the 1840s Scott and Fitz Hugh Lane formed a business partnership to publish lithographs in Boston. Their partnership ended in 1847. By the late 1840s Scott began to exhibit his paintings at the Boston Athenaeum and the Boston Art Club. He became well known for his landscapes of the White Mountains of New Hampshire and the Catskills of New York. At his death at age 92, he was the oldest member of the Boston Art Club. His work has been preserved at the Massachusetts State House in Boston.
