Sean Scully Irish-American, b. 1945
Sean Scully studied art at the Central School of Art and Croydon College of Art in London before receiving his BA from Newcastle University in 1972. Additionally, he was awarded the Frank Knox Fellowship at Harvard University (1972-1973). Scully is considered one of the most important painters of his generation. His style has developed over five decades illustrating the development of contemporary abstraction that fuses together both European painting and an aspect of American abstraction. He spends his time between New York City, Munich and Barcelona. He held his first major exhibition at Rowan Gallery in 1973. Today, Scully's works are in various collections which include the Tate Gallery in London, the Reina Sofia National Museum in Madrid, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and The Museum of Modern Art in New York, among others. He has also received several awards and fellowships, including the GAC Honorary Award (2016), Harkness Fellowship (1975) and Peter Stuyvesant Foundation Prize (1970).
