About the Artwork

From his days as a student at Black Mountain College during the early 1950s until his death in 2011 at the age of 83, Twombly captured his daily life in photographs. He recorded the verdant landscapes of Virginia and the coasts of Italy; close-up details of ancient buildings and sculptures; studio interiors; and still lifes of objects and flowers.

" I don´t go to the studio every day. I have to be in a certain mood to work, and I only work when I feel a real need to paint."

Cy Twombly

This dry-print represents his studio in Lexington, the town where he grew up in Virginia. As in Mmany of his later paintings and works on paper, this artwork shifts toward "romantic symbolism", and its title can be interpreted visually through shapes and forms and words.

About the Artist

Tomblysign2

The American artist Cy Twombly is regarded, alongside his friends Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns, as one of the most important representatives of the generation of artists that in the course of the 1950s detached itself from Abstract Expressionism and developed influential idioms of its own.
