From the press release:
The gift comprises three large late paintings, Untitled (Bacchus) 2006-8, and five sculptures in bronze dating from the period 1979-91.
Twombly's decision to place these works in London was made out of his admiration for Tate and his sympathy for the work of Turner, and followed his major retrospective, Cy Twombly: Cycles and Seasons at Tate Modern in 2008, curated by Nicholas Serota and Nicholas Cullinan. Nicola Del Roscio, President, Cy Twombly Foundation said: ‘On behalf of the Foundation, it is my great pleasure to honor Cy’s wishes with this gift.’
