(NEW) Cy Twombly / Making Past Present

(NEW) Cy Twombly / Making Past Present

 
2020, 264pp, 170 color, exh catalog MFA Boston and THe Getty Museum LA, Christine Kondoleon, cloth, $65 “Many works of the ancients have become fragments. Many works of the moderns are fragments.” For all of his life, Twombly had collected ancient fragments, beginning with his first trip to Rome in 1952. He would buy Etruscan things in flea markets - he would volunteer and work at Roman excavation projects, to gather parts and pieces. His apartments and studios were staged with antiquities, seasoned in their way with the sense and color of Mediterranean culture. This is a catalog to align a bit, the Twombly modernism, with the history that he needed so near, the soil that he loved. He lived his life on ancient Roman ground, and painted upon it.
