bio
Twombly460x276

Edwin Parker (Cy) Twombly Jr. (1928 - 2011) is an American artist well known for his large-scale, freely scribbled, calligraphic-style graffiti paintings, on solid fields of mostly gray, tan, or off-white colors. Twombly paintings blur the line between drawing and painting. Many of his best-known paintings of the late 1960s are reminiscent of a school blackboard on which someone has practiced cursive "e"s. Later, many of his paintings and works on paper moved into "romantic symbolism", and their titles can be interpreted visually through shapes and forms and words.

A web site dedicated to the man and his work can be seen here.

There are 160 pieces from the 1,000 plus Fisher Colletions on display. There were many impressive works and the profile and prestige of SFMOMA will increase dramatically once a new wing is build...

  It seems to me that Cy Twombly has achieved a kind of epiphany in this new work. Following on from the Blooming series of 2007, The Rose series, painted last year in Gaeta and now showing at Gagosian London, not only embodies the late flowering of a long and complex career but also represents the most dramatic kind of affirmation of painting’s continuing power and promise. Jonathan Jones (in The Gu... Read-more-graphic-3b0e37e73c1426b2a5c5599da232620c

  If you see one exhibition in London this year, make it "Cy Twombly's Cycles and Seasons" at the Tate Modern. As a lover of painting, and particularly, artists who make it their life's work to explore the properties of paint on a canvas, I am somewhat biased towards this exhibition. That said, I have seen many of the Tate Modern's temporary exhibitions since it opened in 2000 and few have been... Read-more-graphic-3b0e37e73c1426b2a5c5599da232620c
