Genio Scott's detailed writings describing 19th-century fish distribution remain highly useful for present-day conservationists.
Johnson portrayed Genio Scott as a gentleman of means wearing an informal, yet stylish robe in his New York residence decorated with art. Scott had a successful career as a women’s fashion illustrator and magazine publisher, but his true passion was fly-fishing. Specific details in the portrait reveal the sitter’s attachment to the sport: two fishing poles lean on the wall at the right; three tied flies lie on the table at the left; and a fourth is held in his hand, ready to be placed in his leather-bound fishing wallet.
