Sean Scully

In a career spanning over thirty years, Sean Scully has gained international prominence as one of the most admired painters in the abstract tradition. Indeed he is within the top ten artists worldwide with international appeal to major galleries and museums – others include Lucian Freud, David Hockney, Damien Hirst and Louis le Brocquey - Fusing the traditions of European painting with the distinct character of American abstraction, Scully’s great achievement is the reinvigoration of abstract painting with the metaphorical, the philosophical and the sublime combined with the earthy tangibility of pure paint.

Scully’s work is held by numerous public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; The National Gallery of Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Fort Worth; the Tate, London; Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen K20K21, Düsseldorf; the Albertina, Vienna; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid and Instituto Valencia d’Arte Modern, Valencia. This present work dates from the 1970’s and is considered by some to be Scully at his best.
