Item description for Cy Twombly: The Sculpture by Christian Klemm Katharina Schmidt...

One of the essential artists of our time, Cy Twombly is known primarily for his paintings, but his lesser-known sculpture oeuvre is an important dimension of his work as an artist. This large-format publication reveals his extensive body of sculptural work. Inspired by Kurt Schwitters, Giacometti, and Surrealist object art, some of his early assemblages date back to the 1950's - these pieces are composed of everyday found objects, which Twombly arranged in the form of magical or fetishistic objects. Later he began to cover them with a uniform coat of white paint. Thus placed in a new formal context, the original meaning of the individual pieces is blurred, opening them up to a limitless horizon of associations, connecting them with a wide range of cultural references. Literature and music are evoked, archaic civilizations come to life, and even landscapes and the natural elegance of plants are implied. Twombly's sculptures are always white, exuding both an odd, ethereal quality and an aura of timeless poetry.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cy Twombly: The Sculpture?

more than I expected  Oct 10, 2000
Just happened to pick up this book at my local bookstore in Berkeley CA.... What a surprise! I appreciate art and especially sculpture, but now I have a real appreciation for Cy Twombly! I never really enjoyed his paintings too much (which is his most prominent art form), but this book and his sculpture has certainly given me another point of view... Very original photos of all different periods of his long life along with his sculpture.... many black and white... many photos taken by his friend Rauchenburg, Also lots of written info and photographs of early work etc. A good coffee table book or gift for any art afficanado.
