Sean Scully Room

  • Print

As a result of an ongoing collaboration with Sean Scully, who like Francis Bacon was born in Dublin, the gallery is honoured to be the recipient of a gift of eight paintings presented by the artist in 2006 and Landline Gray, donated in 2018. These paintings form the second permanent installation in a dedicated gallery in the new wing, located just off Gallery 12. This gift from Sean Scully, a superb exponent of abstract art, provides a mainstay for the varied exponents of non-figurative painting in the collection. His practice is singular in its illumination of contemporary concerns in abstract expression.
