Cy Twombly: Sculpture
This poster featuring Chariot of Triumph (1990–98) was produced in 2019, in conjunction with Cy Twombly: Sculpture at Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London. Twombly made sculptures from 1946 until his death in 2011, and they were an important part of his practice. Often modest in scale, they embody his artistic language of handwritten glyphs and symbols, evoking narratives from antiquity and fragments of literature and poetry. Some of Twombly’s sculptures allude to architecture, geometry, and Egyptian and Mesopotamian statuary, as in the rectangular pedestals and circular structures of Chariot of Triumph.
