Cy Twombly: New Sculptures 1998--2005
Primarily known for his paintings and drawings, Cy Twombly has been creating sculpture during his entire career. His characteristic use of poetic and mythic elements is also evident in this field. Out of "mundane" objects such as crates, broomsticks, paper napkins, mashers, stools, string and paper he composes white-painted sculptures. Retaining their everyday identity and materiality the constituent objects take on a condition oblivious to time and change and a life of their own. Fanciful, witty, and at times sarcastic, Twombly transforms his objects, lending them a mythic meaningfulness and a whole new beauty. This publication is the catalog to an exhibition at Munich's Alte Pinakothek in spring 2006 presenting 33 new sculptures created between 1998 and 2005.

An unusual Twombly Apr 17, 2007
A beautiful book on an interesting recent development in Cy Twombly's career. Even though his earliest known sculptures date back to the late fifties, he really concentrated on the medium after 1990, producing a serene body of works marked by a thick white impasto covering common objects, found here and there, mounted together to form elegant and sometimes majestic sculptures. A good supplement to the Catalogue Raisonné (which stops in 1995). My only criticism would be on the text, which sometimes tends to be a bit too hagiographic; the admiration professed by the authors towards the artist seems almost religious, however,like every great artist, Twombly has produced masterpieces, but also some minor works...
