Cy Twombly

American, 1928-2011. Inspired by contemporaries such as Jackson Pollock and Paul Klee, Cy Twombly's compositions were a mix of drips, splatters, and scrawled lines. Twombly studied art at the Art Students Leauge in New York as well as Black Mountain College in North Carolina with fellow artist and friend Robert Rauschenberg. Together they toured Italy and North Africa where Twombly filled sketchbooks with drawings of patterns and objects they encountered. He even began drawing with the opposite hand which contributed to his child-like scrawls in his work. Twombly was drafted into military service in 1953 and worked as a cryptographer which influenced him to combine writing and imagry into his paintings. While to some it appeared to be graffiti or non-sensical scribbles, each stroke and drip was deliberate. Twombly's work, while abstract, drew from classical art and literature which he was surrounded by after he relocated to Italy in 1957. Twombly vasilated between loud and muted palletes through his career but was consistently in abstract imagery.
