Cy Twombly: Photographs 1951–2007
Signed by the artist, this book documents Cy Twombly’s poetic and highly personal use of photography over a fifty-year career. It reproduces Twombly’s interior shots of his studios in Lexington, Virginia, and Gaeta, Italy; details of his paintings, sculptures, and collected artifacts; and landscape and still life compositions that picture sometimes unexpected objects along with verdant images of fruit, flowers, and organic growth. Twombly printed his photographs on matte paper using a dry-print process that imbues them with a unique grain and texture, the enigmatic results evoking the pictorialist tradition in fin de siècle photography while remaining resolutely contemporary. The volume features an essay by art historian Laszlo Glozer.
