Sean Scully

I was pleased to see the full range of Sean Scully’s work in his exhibition at the De Pont Museum:  from early drawings undertaken from before when he was a student at Croydon College of Art in the 1960s developing his drawings both figuratively and abstractly through to big meditative abstract paintings, beautifully displayed, top-lit in good natural daylight in the empty spaces of the De Pont Museum, and including many beautiful prints and drawings in the small closet spaces which run alongside the exhibition.
