One of our favorite artists work on view.
Cy Twombly’s massive graffiti-esque paintings are difficult to define or categorize. They’re part calligraphy, part abstraction, and completely stunning. Next month Gagosian opens an exhibition of the last paintings Twombly made before his death in 2011, along with around one hundred photographs, a less well-known side of the artist’s work.
Cy Twombly’s The Last Paintings is on view at Gagosian (Madison Ave) November 1 through December 22.
