In his paintings, drawings and sculptures, powetry and an extraordinary aesthetic sensitivity combine with references to ancient mythology and the experiences of the modern individual. Published in 2002, this volume assembles more than forty writings on Cy Twombly starting with his first solo exhibition in 1951: poems, philosophical and scholarly essays, as well as comments by fellow artists form an anthology that relates the history of culture in the second half of the 20th century.
