Paris Photo 2021
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.
