James Fraser Scott (1877-1932) was born in Dunedin, New Zealand, He studied at the Dunedin School of Art and, while studying there, won the Otago Art Society’s gold medal for landscape and figure drawing upon his exhibition debut with the Society in 1896. He then travelled to Europe in 1898, studying first under Benjamin Constant and Jean Paul Laurens at the Académie Julian in Paris, along with Melbourne artist James S. MacDonald, then at the Munich Academy of Arts (Akademie der Bildenden Künste München) under Carl von Marr. Scott also travelled through Brussels, Antwerp, Rome, Florence and Venice. In 1901, while studying in Munich, Scott had a work, Intérieur hollandaise (Dutch interior), accepted by the Paris Salon of the Société des Artistes Français, apparently the first New Zealand-born artist to be so honoured. 

In 1908 he moved to Sydney, living and painting around Narrabeen, in the northern beaches, exhibiting with the New South Wales Society of Artists, the Royal Art Society of New South Wales and the South Australian Society of Arts (SASA). 

Besides the Australian War Memorial’s collection, Scott’s work is held in many New Zealand public galleries, libraries and museums.
