Cy Twombly


Seeing the work by all the Italian Artists that I've posted about brings so much more sense to the work of Cy Twombly.

He fits in, they fit into an artistic moment in time. It's hard to believe that there was a time when abstract art was first "invented". That up to that point there had only been realism and designs. How exciting it must have been for all of them to "join hands" and step off that cliff together.
