Cy Twombly: Drawings. Catalogue Raisonne Vol. 5, 1970-1971 by Nicola Del Roscio

The years 1970–71 were a very prolific period in which Cy Twombly, influenced by Leonardo da Vinci’s
Deluge drawings, created his iconic style: scribbled,
calligraphic, and graffiti-like works on solid fields. In the late Kirk Varnedoe’s words, this—most minimal—
phase of Twombly’s oeuvre is characterized by a
"nervous, obsessed energy, yet its trance-like mono -
tony also opens out into a sense of serene, oceanic dissolution, in a nebular cloud of great depth and infinite complexity". His drawings of this phase featured in Vol. V of his Catalogue Raisonné of Drawings include,
among others, acclaimed extensive series such as
Roman Notes, Study for Treatise on the Veil, and
Beyond (A System of Passing).
