Cy Twombly

After the talk by Alice Kettle I started thinking about one of my favourite artists Cy Twombly, who also references classical mythology in his work. I have always loved his paintings but had only seen photographs until his major exhibition " Cycles and Seasons" at Tate Modern in June 2008. This was a wonderful exhibiton full of Twombly's most famous works. The favourites for me were The Four Seasons ( spring, summer, autumn, and winter ), Quatro Stagioni ( a painting in four parts ) and the Ferragasto paintings. See more of Cy Twombly's paintings, drawings and sculptures at the Gagosian gallery.
