Cy Twombly

Wilder Shores of Love — oil, crayon, and pencil on plywood, 1985

Summer Madness — oil, gouache, pencil, and crayon on paper, 1990

Free Wheeler — house paint, crayon, pencil, and pastel on canvas, 1955

Cy Twombly was an American artist, born in 1928. His earlier works, consisting of pencil scribblings, from the 1950s fall under Abstract Expressionism. Above, I'm showing two of his works from his later Postmodern phase. I just can't get into the scribblings, they don't really make sense to me. I do like that he experiments with so many different mediums. It livens things up.
