Cy Twombly im Museum Brandhorst

Exhibition Museum Modern
In the organizer's words:

The Museum Brandhorst in Munich has one of the most extensive collections of works by the American artist Cy Twombly (1928 - 2011). The exhibition on the entire upper floor of the museum is dedicated to him. The highlights of the unique collection include the Rose Hall and the Lepanto Cycle with a room specially created for it.

The exhibition on the upper floor spans a comprehensive range from Cy Twombly's early works to his last works. Charged, abstract forms, painterly gestures and approaches to writing are recurring motifs in Twombly's oeuvre. The spidery lines applied to mostly white, often dirty-looking backgrounds are reminiscent of New York graffiti as well as inscriptions and carvings on Roman ruins. These and other allusions to his adopted home of Italy and Mediterranean culture can be found as topoi in his works.
