Paris Photo 2021
Cy Twombly

November 11–14, 2021
Grand Palais Ephémère, Paris

Gagosian is pleased to participate in Paris Photo 2021 with a presentation of photographs by Cy Twombly, featuring fruit, flower, and landscape imagery. These shots are permeated with images of organic growth, depicting heirloom lemons cultivated in Gaeta, Italy; the petals of tulips and roses; and verdant landscapes captured near the artist’s Lexington, Virginia, birthplace. The evocation of vision and memory and the joyful embrace of life embodied by these photographs extend to the pictures that Twombly took in 2011 of crosses and flowers in a cemetery on the Caribbean island of Saint Barthélemy—his final series of photographs.

Cy Twombly: Sculpture (London: Gagosian, 2019)

Online Reading

Cy Twombly
Sculpture

Cy Twombly: Sculpture is available for online reading from November 1 through November 30 as part of the From the Library series. The book documents a 2019 exhibition at Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London, which brought together important and rarely shown sculptures by the artist. Twombly made his sculptures from found materials such as plaster, wood, and iron, as well as objects that he habitually used and handled in the studio. Often modest in scale, they embody his artistic language of handwritten glyphs and symbols, evoking narratives from antiquity and fragments of literature and poetry. The book includes a conversation between Nicola Del Roscio, president of the Cy Twombly Foundation; art historian and curator Sir Nicholas Serota; and Gagosian director Mark Francis.
