Cy Twombly — Orpheus


Painting, mixed media

Cy Twombly

Past: December 1, 2016 → March 18, 2017

Gagosian presents an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Cy Twombly. It coincides with the retrospective Cy Twombly opening at Centre Pompidou, Paris on November 30.

The selection of works, dating between 1968 and 1979, take as their subject the figure of Orpheus. Orpheus, the mythic archetype representing the artist and the creative process itself was also the subject of Sonnets to Orpheus, a cycle of fifty-five sonnets written by Rainer Maria Rilke in 1922, which were of great inspiration to Twombly. The works on show have never been brought together until now.
