From the press release:
The selection of works, dating between 1968 and 1979, take as their subject the figure of Orpheus.
Orpheus, the mythic archetype representing the artist and the creative process itself was also the subject of Sonnets to Orpheus, a cycle of fifty-five sonnets written by Rainer Maria Rilke in 1922, which were of great inspiration to Twombly.
The works on show have never been brought together until now.
