The American artist Cy Twombly is regarded as one
of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
Starting off from abstract expressionism, he developed
his own original style using writing-like signs
which he exaggerated in size into monumental,
large-format canvases. The presentation at the
MUMOKthe first in Austriabrings together works
from all periods of his oeuvre and presents a new
cycle of works specially created for the show.
Twombly's pictures and sculptures evoke the ancient
myths of the Mediterranean world though it is the
incidental and underlying that is the focal point.
The alternation between sensitivity and vulgarity,
filigree technique and expressivity constitute the
enormous tension in the works. The exhibition,
presented as a retrospective, brings together genres
that, up until now, have generally been shown separately
sculpture, painting, drawing, graphic works,
