Back in Stock! The Essential Cy Twombly

Though Cy Twombly is best known as one of the great painters of the post-war era, he also produced an awesome body of drawings, sculpture and photography over the course of his eighty-three years on earth. Featured photo, Peonies (1980) is reproduced from The Essential Cy Twombly, the ultimate overview, back in stock at last. When the book first came out, Bookforum's Albert Mobilio wrote, "This volume provides a complete survey of Twombly’s oeuvre, including his sculpture and photography, and features pointedly insightful essays that help crack the artist’s code of script and signs. Having nearly 60 years of work at hand provides abundant evidence of the paradox governing Twombly’s art—the interplay between the epic scope of his cultural materials and the enigmatic, deeply personal means of their representation… Of course, none of [Twombly's] ideation, however elegant in its intricacy, would mean much if the images themselves weren’t beautiful—or, to be more accurate, beautiful in their subversion of 'beauty.' Twombly’s art instructs, perplexes, and ultimately seduces."
