Sean Scully from the Author: Sean Scully. A complete retrospective of Sean Scully's work in all media, from the early 1970s to the present, published to accompany a European exhibition tour. "If there is such a thing as an 'advance' in transcendental abstraction...then Scully's paintings, simultaneously gestural and geometrical, are that advance. They breathe new spiritual life and subtlety into transcendental abstraction, showing that it not only remains possible and viable, but that it is necessary in these spiritually dark art times."-Donald Kuspit Over more than thirty years, Sean Scully has produced a vibrant, compelling, and constantly inventive body of work that is widely collected and internationally exhibited. His familiar signature style of lines or bands of color alluding to architectural elements such as portals, windows, and walls is instantly recognizable. His recent "Walls of Light" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art drew almost 100,000 visitors and received widespread critical acclaim. Published to accompany a major European exhibition tour,Sean Scullyincludes work in all media-painting, photographs, prints, drawings, and watercolors-from the early 1970s to the present, the only book to cover his entire career to date. Texts by respected curators Maris Lluisa Borras, Danilo Eccher, Lorand Hegyi, and award-winning American critic and art historian Donald Kuspit position the artist in his rightful place within the traditions of twentieth-century abstraction, while discussing the spiritual, emotional, and very human nature of his art. 158 illustrations, 133 in color.

The Imagery Of Sean Scully from the Author: Susanne Kleine. A stunning retrospective volume on the internationally renowned abstract painter Sean Scully. Rectangular squares of colour are a signature element of Sean Scully's work. Whether tightly ruled and delineated, or murkily defined with rough brushstrokes, his hues and patterns evoke a deep spiritual connection to the natural world. This collection of paintings completed over 35 years pays eloquent tribute to the power of the abstract - the aesthetic value of pure form, pure surface, and pure colour. My paintings talk of relationships" writes Scully in an interview conducted exclusively for this collection, "How bodies come together. How they touch. How they separate. How they live together, in harmony and disharmony." Scully's involvement with this beautiful volume extends to its design. The result is a compelling exploration of one of the most important living artists' work.

Sean Scully from the Author: David Carrier. Sean Scully is one of today’s best-loved abstract painters. Over more than thirty years, he has produced a vibrant and compelling body of work that is widely collected and internationally exhibited. His familiar signature style of lines or bands of colour is one of the most instantly recognizable in contemporary painting. This book is an illustrated monograph to present an account of the artist’s entire life and career, from his childhood in 1950s London, via New York and Barcelona, to the present day in Munich. Lavish reproductions of his major works illustrate the text, while photographs taken by Scully on his travels show some of the forms that inspire them. Photographs of Scully at work in his studio demonstrate how he creates his pictures, from blank canvas to finished work. Art historian and critic David Carrier traces the development of Scully’s oeuvre and assesses its significance. A concise chronology, exhibition history and select bibliography, as well as an interview with the artist, complete a volume which should be found on all contemporary art bookshelves.

Modern Art Museum Of Fort Worth 110 from the Author: Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. This book accompanies and celebrates the inaugural exhibition at the new Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, designed by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando. The central subject of and impetus for this building from the beginning has been art, with particular emphasis on the display of the permanent collection. Of the 153,000 square feet of space to support space that emphasizes art like few museums in the world. That the first exhibition in these pristine galleries is devoted to the collection is a testament of pride and priority. Works by approximately 150 artists, covering a wide range of movements, especially postwar Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, and Minimalism, are currently displayed over the Museum's three two-story gallery pavilions. Together they present a broad range of styles and media, from oil, acrylic, and mixed-media paintings and drawings to photography, sculpture, installation art, and video and digital imagery. In honor of the Museum's 110th anniversary, 110 of these artists have been chosen for inclusion in this publication. Each artist's work is presented in the form of a large color plate and a detailed text entry, together with footnotes and key artist information. A selection of the artists - notably Philip Guston, Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter, and Robert Motherwell - are presented in the form of extended monographic essays, accompanied by up to eight works, as a reflection of their importance in the Museum's permanent collection and their wider importance in the development of postwar art.
