Around 1911, Scott traveled to Europe and painted in Giverny. Her freely-brushed landscapes from this period reflect the influence of Impressionism on her work. She was back in Boston by 1913 and later took a teaching position at Miss Porter’s School for Girls in Farmington, Connecticut. Scott exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Society of Independent Artists, and also showed with Vose Galleries in 1915 and 1917.
