Patrick Scott, one of Ireland's greatest artists, has died (1921-2014). He is perhaps best known to the Irish railway community as the originator of the classic CIE black/golden brown/white liveries. He did this creative work for CIE in the 1960s when he worked with the Signa design consultancy (a firm founded by Louis le Brocquy and Michael Scott in 1953). The story goes that Patrick was inspired by a cat he owned which had a coat with mixture of the livery colours!

 

May he Rest in Peace.
