Overview


"As his final creative surprise, Cy Twombly, one of the greatest 20th-century artists, has given to the world a huge body of photographic works emphasizing his unique artistic vision.

Contrary to his sharp and teeming drawings his photographs are not sharp at all. They are colorful, soft, and warm and generate a painterly impression. Their coloring is as unique as their fine sense of composition.

The photographs reveal the artist's vision embedded both in the world of objects and the nature that surrounds him. His own artistic creations and collection of art objects in his various homes are a favorite subject of his photographic studies.

Twombly's photographic work offers a new dimension for understanding the artist's patintings, drawings, and sculptures.

The new book features some 120 photographic prints from the Cy Twombly Estate in Gaeta, most of them previously unpublished."
