Cy Twombly, Leda and the Swan, 1963, 99,6 x 81,2 cm, Courtesy Galerie Karsten Greve, Köln -- Paris -- Mailand -- St. Moritz
This weekend I am planning to visit the Tate exhibition with Cy Twombly. Tate Modern presents a major exhibition of works by Cy Twombly, one of the most highly regarded painters working today and a foremost figure among the generation of American artists that includes Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol. Twombly rose to prominence through a distinctive style characterised by scribbles and vibrantly daubed paint. This is his first solo retrospective in fifteen years, and provides an overview of his work from the 1950s to now.
