Item description for Cy Twombly: Photographs 1951-2007 by Cy Twombly...
Ever since his student days, Cy Twombly has concerned himself with photography, but only in recent years he has turned it into a unique artistic concept and an aesthetic sensation. Twombly s photographic pieces are documents of a fascinatingly enigmatic and personal poetry. His studios in Lexington and Gaeta, details of his own sculptures and collected sculptural items, landscape motifs, fruits and flowers appear in a mysteriously transformed manner on these delicate sheets. Printed in matte colors on matte paper using a dry-print process that imbues them with velvet and almost grainy hue, the images are vaguely reminiscent of the pictorialist tradition in fin de sicle photography. In their minimalist way, however, generating aesthetic visions by the simplest of means, they are utterly contemporary. Photographs 1980 2007 presents Twombly s photographic works of the last twenty-five years full of surprises and breathtaking beauty.
