About the Author

Edwin Parker (Cy) Twombly (1928-2011) was born in Lexington, Virginia. He lived and worked in New York in the early 1950s (where he met Robert Rauschenberg, with whom he was to have a long personal and artistic relationship) and studied at the legendary Black Mountain College in North Carolina before traveling around North Africa, Spain and Italy and ultimately settling in Rome before the end of the decade, just as the art world was shifting its center of gravity to New York. Best known for his paintings and drawings, often executed on a massive scale across multiple canvases, Twombly also made sculptures and photographs.

Exhibit A, Artistc flourishes show her creative side.--The Editors "W Magazine "
The Essential Cy Twombly, compiled by Nicole Del Roscio, Twombly's longtime companion, presents paintings as well as rarely shown photographs and scultpures from an artist who spent hours drawing in the dark to develop his shaky, spontaneous lines.--T. Fleischmann "Publisher's Weekly "
Having nearly sixty years of work at hand provides abundant evidence of the paradox governing Twombly's art-the interesting play between the epic scope of his cultural materials and the enigmatic, deeply personal means of their representation.

Twombly's art instructs, perplexes, and ultimately seduces.--Albert Mobilio "Bookforum "
Twombly has remained the subject of great interest and research, with two enlightening new books - The Essential Cy Twombly and Cy Twombly: Paradise - hitting the shelves this autumn.--Another Magazine
