Cy Twombly / CY DEAR, Directed by Andrea Bettinetti
CY DEAR / Directed by Andrea Bettinetti
October 18, 2019, 7:30 pm / Musée du Louvre, Auditorium
CY DEAR pays homage to Cy Twombly’s career, an American artist from Lexington, Virginia, who emerged as a prominent figure in the mid-1950’s as a contemporary of Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. Cy Twombly is perhaps best known for his gestural vocabulary in paintings and drawings, in which each line and color is infused with energy, spirituality, and meaning. Digressing from the prior generation of American postwar abstraction, he drew upon the ancient, classical, and modern poetic traditions. The inspiration and innovation also extended to his work in sculpture, photography, and print.
