Sean Scully RA (born 30 June 1945) is an Irish-born American-based artist working as a painter, printmaker, sculptor and photographer. His work is held in museum collections worldwide and he has twice been named a Turner Prize nominee. Moving from London to New York in 1975, Scully helped lead the transition from Minimalism to Emotional abstraction in painting, abandoning the reduced vocabulary of Minimalism in favor of a return to metaphor and spirituality in art. Scully has also been a lecturer and professor at a number of universities and is highly regarded for his writing and teachings, collected in the 2016 book, Inner: The Collected Writings and Selected Interviews of Sean Scully. Conrad is considered an early modernist, though his works contain elements of 19th-century realism. His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced numerous authors, and many films have been adapted from, or inspired by, his works. Numerous writers and critics have commented that Conrad's fictional works, written largely in the first two decades of the 20th century, seem to have anticipated later world events. Provenance Sale, London, Sotheby's, 2015, The Joseph Conrad Collection. Literature Elizabeth Phillips & Tony Zwicker, The American Livre de Peintre, 48 ("Scully, long a champion of abstract art as a democratic language capable of expressing pure feeling, here maps the African continent in a group of etchings, which, with their brooding intensity, run parallel to the unfolding of Conrad's sombre allegory"). Very good. Item #264
