Description from the Publisher
Cy Twombly, one of the most important American artists of the second half of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, inscribed written notations up to complete po- ems into his works during almost his entire creative period.
For the first time, a catalog of all inscribed works by Cy Twombly is now available in five opulent volumes, supplemented by an introductory volume. All inscriptions have been transcribed and placed in the context of their sources. The publication of the notations makes the scriptural clearly recognizable for the first time as an equal element in the structure of the work and an essential medium of signification in Twombly’s pictorial world. The introductory volume, which evaluates the results of the transcription and attribution, analyzes the development and intertextual referentiality of the inscriptions, their discursive and iconic aspects, and the manifold constellations of reference that the written and the painted enter into on the picture surface. The publication is in English.
