Sean Scully

My main raison d’être for coming to Venice is to see Sean Scully’s work in S. Giorgio Maggiore, Palladio’s great church begun in 1566 and incomplete at the time of his death in 1580.

The nave is filled by a single work, Opulent Ascension:-

Behind the high altar is a manuscript which sits within the monks’ stalls:-

Outside is Brown Tower:-

And Landline paintings in the Manica Lunga:-

Window Beneath:

And Sleeper Stack in the garden:-
