    Sean Scully Signed Photograph
    "My work is about the difficulty and possibility of coming together." -Sean Scully

    Sean Scully (b. 1945) is one of the leading abstract painters of our time. His career has been built on a simple recipe of painted stripes and bars, and yet these bricks of colour offer unsettlingly complex possibilities. This photograph of the artist in front of a painting from his "Wall of Light" series was taken by David Woo.

    19 x 13 inches including border, Sean Scully signed the lower right, David Woo lower left.

    Donated by David Woo

    David Woo is a 35-year veteran photographer with The Dallas Morning News and was part of The Dallas Morning News staff that won the Pulitzer Prize for news photography in 2005 for their coverage of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

    Benefiting Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
    The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is a unique cultural institution. The Museum is a multifaceted venue, featuring various types of artistic media. Throughout the year, thousands of people gather here to tour the exhibition galleries, watch films in the auditorium, and attend musical and dance performances. Thousands of children and adults also participate in a variety of educational programming. Without the contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies, these programs and events would not be possible.
