Description from the publisher
Though perhaps best known for his paintings, Cy Twombly (1928–2011) developed a singular body of sculpture over the course of his 60-year career. These sculptures are made from quotidian materials such as wood, paint, metal, and found objects, including plastic flowers, lampshades, and a makeshift seat, to which he applied a delicate and unifying layer of white paint.
This catalogue marks the long-term exhibition of five Twombly sculptures at Glenstone, and includes an original essay by scholar Kate Nesin and never-before-published archival images of the sculptures in the artist’s studios in Italy courtesy of the Nicola Del Roscio Archives.
