Description from the wall panel:
Cy Twombly, Untitled I-VI (Green Paintings), ca. 1986
Acrylic on plywood with artist's frame
These six works evoke a walk in the woods, or the whiteness of the Mediterranean Sea that was visible from Twombly’s studio in Gaeta, Italy. The artist fully embraced the combination of gravity and a vertical support - green paint cascades onto the panels and drips onto the rounded molding in a merging of image and frame, an abiding interest of Twombly's in the 1980s. He appears to have experimented with the sequence of panels, which may explain why Untitled I-VI (Green Paintings) was not included in the catalogue raisonné of his paintings or exhibited during his lifetime; the works remained with Twombly until his death in 2011. To this day, it remains unclear whether the artist considered them finished or unfinished.
