Sean Scully: Change and Horizontals

The National Gallery of Modern Art follows a turning point in the career of acclaimed Irish-born American painter and printmaker Sean Scully. The exhibition concentrates on the years from 1974 to 1975, when Scully began working with acrylics, masking tape and graphite. Among a series of works from this period are three watercolours and some 60 pages from Scully's notebooks. The show, originally realised for the Drawing Center in New York by curators Joanna Kleinberg and Brett Littman, comes to the Italian capital thanks to Rome-based curator Peter Benson Miller.
