Rob Sharp reviews a new, permanent installation of works by Sean Scully at the monastery of Santa Cecília, Montserrat, Spain

Sharp observes that "22 of [Scully's] artworks, including six abstract canvases with his signature bands and blocks of color, energize a space that is more than 1,000 years old... As well as advising the restoration team on the monastery’s interior, Mr. Scully has donated paintings on canvas, aluminum and copper; replaced windows with stained glass; designed candlesticks; and painted frescoes on the walls."
