Synopsis: This book accompanies the much-anticipated 2014 exhibition Cy Twombly: Paradise, at Museo Jumex in Mexico City--the first time a comprehensive exhibition of the American artist's work has been mounted in Latin America. The exhibition and book include works on paper, paintings and sculpture that span Twombly's career, from early works of the 1950s to the Camino Real series of paintings that he completed shortly before his death in 2011. The book includes 57 works of art, along with double-page, full-bleed detail photographs that capture Twombly's dramatic gestural style and lush palette. An essay by curator and author Philip Larratt-Smith contextualizes the works and this monumental exhibition. In his essay, Larratt-Smith considers the abiding presence of Roman and Greek mythology in Twombly's art: "For Twombly, the myths of antiquity are dreams and mirrors. Mythical characters are archetypes, and the sequence of events follows an oneiric logic that is intuitively convincing even when irreducible to reason. Twombly finds his own passions reflected in the external patterns of myth; the mirroring effect between aesthetic experience and psychic response is profound and generative. His works are never literary depictions of a myth, though myth may suggestively open the work up to narrative. Myth permits emotional expressivity without disclosing biographical origins and, conversely, provides an objective correlative to the realm of sexuality and fantasy."

About the Author: Cy Twombly (1928-2011) was born in 1928 in Lexington, Virginia. In themid-1950s, following travels in Europe and Africa, he emerged as aprominent figure among a group of artists working in New York thatincluded Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. In 1968, the MilwaukeeArt Center mounted his first retrospective. This was followed by majorretrospectives at the Kunsthaus Zurich (1987) travelling to Madrid,London and Paris; the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1994) and thePinakothek der Moderne in Munich (2006). In 1995, the Cy TwomblyGallery opened at The Menil Collection, Houston, exhibiting works madeby the artist since 1954. The European retrospective "Cy Twombly: Cyclesand Seasons" opened at the Tate Modern, London in June 2008, withsubsequent versions at the Guggenheim Bilbao and the Museum ofModern Art in Rome in 2009. Recent exhibitions include "Cy Twombly:The Natural World, Selected Works 2000-2007," The Art Institute ofChicago (2009) and "Sensations of the Moment," the Museum ModernerKunst Stiftung Ludwig, Vienna, (2009). In 2010, Twombly's permanentsite-specific painting, Ceiling was unveiled in the Salle des Bronzes at theMusee du Louvre. At the same time he was made Chevalier of the Legiond'Honneur by the French government.Twombly died in 2011 in Rome, Italy.
