Cy Twombly: The Last Paintings
NEW YORK  •  Gagosian Gallery  •  Ongoing
The eight untitled paintings are closely related to the Camino Real group that inaugurated Gagosian Paris in 2010. The inimitable, exuberant paintwork and bold, intense colors typify the freedom with which Cy Twombly worked, never restricted to a single reference. Even in the face of his impending death, their elegiac power, vivid palette, and ardent gestures pulse with the energies of the new.

The intimate photographs range from early studio images taken in the 1950s to a group of landscapes taken in St Barths in 2011. Since 2008, major exhibitions of the artist’s photographs have been held at FOAM Amsterdam; Museum Brandhorst, Munich; and the Palais des Beaux Arts, Brussels; however this is the first time that this lesser known aspect of Twombly’s oeuvre has been presented in such depth in the United States.
