Cy Twombley: Rooms and Roses

September 12, 2011

Munich's Schirmer/Mosel Showroom unveils the artist's unseen photographs

  • Text by Antonia Wille

Cy Twombley is best known for his abstract pictures and nervous paintings, then in 1928, as artists began to become fascinated by photography so too was its effect felt by Wombley, but it wasn't until the 90s that the American artist decided to concentrate on photography.

Now the Schirmer/Mosel Showroom is exhibiting the inspiring work of Cy Twombley in Munich. From now until October 29 the exhibition called "Rooms and Roses" presents the work of the artist, who tragically passed away in July. Within the exhibition there are 30 unpublished photos taken between 1999 to 2009. The exhibition reveals the treasures of beauty, asthetic cleverness and the motives Cy Twombley represented - all of which are a revelation of some of his most private situations. All the pictures have their own identity and characters based on Cy Twombley's unique understanding of aesthetic and colour.
