I went to Gagosian at 21st street to see Cy Twombly In Beauty it is finished: Drawings 1951–2008.
The title of the show said Drawings. Before I went, I had wondered that most of his art works were looked like drawings. Then, what look like his “real” drawings?
The show was absolutely gorgeous. From the press release;
Throughout his career, Twombly sustained an active engagement with drawing, gesture, and making marks on paper. His urgent, meandering lines embody the intimate energies that carry over into his paintings, sculptures, and photography. Despite their enigmatic qualities, Twombly’s drawings are strikingly articulate in their rhythm, line, and allusions. At once economical and deeply sensual, they contain a timeless language, mediating between ancient and modern culture.
