Summary

Outstanding!

Acclaimed as one of the greatest painters of the second half of the twentieth century, Cy Twombly reconnects the legacy of American abstract expressionism with the origins of Western classical painting. He accords paramount importance to the cycles and series in which he reinvents in his way, the great history of painting.

Exhibition at the Centre Pompidou from November 30, 2016 to April 24, 2017

Description

Under the direction of Jonas Storsve, this beautiful book traces the amazing journey and career of the artist, from his early work marked by primitive arts, graffiti and writing, until his last monumental paintings. Unpublished documents of archives highlight the extraordinary personality of Cy Twombly. His work synthesizes a wealth of unusual experiences, with multiple peregrinations between countries and cultures, and incessant readings.

The catalogue highlights outstanding iconography, in different expressions (paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs).

An original timeline completes this attractive book, interspersed with scenes of life of Cy Twombly brilliantly told by Nicolas del Roscio, his former assistant and friend.
