Irish-born Sean Scully is one of the most important abstract painters alive today. His familiar signature style of lines or bands of colour alluding to architectural elements such as portals, windows and walls is instantly recognizable. Published to accompany a major European exhibition, this book includes work in all media - painting, photographs, prints, drawings and watercolours - from the early 1970s to the present, the only book to cover his entire career to date.
