Cy Twombly’s massive graffiti-esque paintings are difficult to define or categorize. They’re part calligraphy, part abstraction, and completely stunning. Next month Gagosian opens an exhibition of the last paintings Twombly made before his death in 2011, along with around one hundred photographs, a less well-known side of the artist’s work.
Cy Twombly’s The Last Paintings is on view at Gagosian (Madison Ave) November 1 through December 22.

Cy Twombly, Fifty Days at Iliam, 1978

In the summer of 1977, Cy Twombly began working on a “painting in ten parts” based on Alexander Pope’s translation of Homer’s Iliad. Completed in 1978 and collectively titled Fifty Days at Iliam, the works evoke incidents from Homer’s epic poem in Twombly’s characteristic synthesis of words and images. The ten large canvases follow one another much like a developing narrative.

Saw this today at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I was lucky enough to get a private tour of the Zoe Strauss show and my guide took me up and nobody was in the room. Second only to the Twombly Gallery in Houston — every time I’m in front of his stuff it knocks me out.
