Sean Scully. Eleuthera

Until 8 September 2019

Sean Scully is known above all for his highly expressive abstract paintings of colorful stripes or rectangles. But it is an entirely new side of this artist that comes to light in a work series being given its first-ever presentation by the Albertina Museum. The series Eleuthera from the years 2015-2017 revolves around a very private subject: these 23 large-format oil paintings show Scully’s eight-year-old son Oisín playing at the beach on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. This exhibition shows all of these oil paintings by Scully as well as smaller pastels, drawings, and photographic works.

On view from 7 June until 8 September 2019.
