About this title


Cy Twombly was one of the most unusual and intriguing artists of our time. In his paintings, drawings and sculptures, powetry and an extraordinary aesthetic sensitivity combine with references to ancient mythology and the experiences of the modern individual. Published in 2002, this volume assembles more than forty writings on Cy Twombly starting with his first solo exhibition in 1951: poems, philosophical and scholarly essays, as well as comments by fellow artists form an anthology that relates the history of culture in the second half of the 20th century. Edited by Nicola del Roscio, it includes writings by Roland Barthes, Arthur C. Danto, Charles Olson, Robert Motherwell, Octavio Paz, Robert Rauschenberg, Pierre Restany, David Sylvester, Kirk Varnedoe and many more. Beautifully illustrated with the artist's most important works, this large-size volume is literally the "textbook" to understanding this most fascinating contemporary artist.

About the Author:

Born in 1928 in Lexington, Virginia, Twombly studied art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston the Art Students League, New York and Black Mountain College in North Carolina. In the mid 1950s, following travels in Europe and Africa, Twombly emerged as a prominent figure among a group of artists working in New York that included Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. In 1959, Twombly settled permanently in Rome. He has had numerous one-person exhibitions internationally and has been the subject of major retrospectives in both Europe and America.
