An American artist born in Lexington in 1928 and who died in Rome in 2011, Cy Twombly began his artistic studies at a time when the abstract expressionism of the New York School was taking hold. From the outset, Twombly asserted himself through a style of great freedom, combining a graphic expression in which gesture takes precedence, with the inscription of signs such as letters, numbers, figures or even his own signature... The whole appears, with its dirt, stains and streaks of color, like sublime scribbles, taut and sensual, which never fail to baffle the critics.

In 1957, he moved to Rome, eager to immerse himself in the ancient culture that so fascinated him. It gradually infused his work, manifesting itself in snatches of phrases or proper names, "invoking rather than evoking" Greco-Latin mythology and ancient or pre-Romantic authors.

His stroke, with its inimitable tremor and ecstatic ramblings, seems to defy time and history, uniting in a single gesture the most archaic forms with those of modernity. Far from any formalism, his work is an intimate translation of the soul's movements in the face of that which transcends it, in a poignant, enigmatic language in which the body, in an eminently sensual mode, constantly imparts its vital energy.

Edited by Jonas Storvse, chief curator in charge of the graphic arts cabinet at MNAM/Centre Pompidou, Guy Tosatto, director of the Musée de Grenoble, and Sophie Bernard, chief curator, modern and contemporary art collections, Musée de Grenoble.
