CY TWOMBLY was one of the most fascinating and remarkable artists of our time. His œuvre, the paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, and prints have been widely exhibited, both in America and Europe. His worldwide recognition is still growing. Twombly’s art reconciles grand themes of the ›memoriae‹ of ancient topographies as well as modernism with the individual, personal experience of contemporary life. Seldom has an artist achieved such a distinctive, broad range of an ever new, surprisingly unique language, exploring and celebrating the poetic possibility of painting and drawing.
THIS Catalogue Raisonné of Cy Twombly’s graphic work is the first presentation of the complete printed œuvre: 95 works, which the artist produced over a period of nearly fifty years. The information given in this publication was thoroughly researched. The reproduction of prints follows high standard.
HEINER BASTIAN, the editor of this volume, regarded as one of the most profound experts on the artist’s work.
