Cy Twombly: Paradise

Regular price Regular price $60

This book was published on the occasion of Cy Twombly: Paradise, an exhibition organized in 2014 by Museo Jumex, Mexico City, that traveled to Ca’ Pesaro, Galleria Internazionale d’Arte Moderna, Venice, in 2015. The first major exhibition of Twombly’s work in Latin America, it was organized in collaboration with the Twombly Foundation and curated by Julie Sylvester and Philip Larratt-Smith. Surveying six decades of the artist’s career, from 1951 through 2011, Cy Twombly: Paradise included paintings, sculptures, and works on paper.

The catalogue illustrates the fifty-six works on view and features full-bleed double-page details of selected works that capture the artist’s brilliant palette and dramatic gestural mark making. In an accompanying essay, “Psychedelic Antiquity,” Larratt-Smith analyzes Twombly’s oeuvre as revolving around love, art, beauty, and death—themes channeled through the artist’s gestural abstraction, wide-ranging allusions, and extraordinary visual intelligence. The publication also includes a foreword by Eugenio López Alonso and a preface by Patrick Charpenel.
