Cy Twombly Photographer, Friends and Others: Le Temps Retrouve


Cy Twombly Photographer, Friends and Others: Le Temps Retrouve Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although world-famous for his paintings and sculptures, Cy Twombly (1928-2011) was also a photographer, and his practice of photographing interiors, the sea and still lifes, as well as his paintings and sculptures, spanned the duration of his 60-year career. This massive two-volume catalogue gathers this lesser-known aspect of the artist's output, contextualizing it through an exhibition that Twombly himself curated at the Collection Lambert in Avignon. His selection of works was both original and revealing: Jacques Henri Lartigue's albums, the marine horizons of Hiroshi Sugimoto, the serial photographs of Ed Ruscha and Sol Lewitt, and the portraits of Diane Arbus and his close friend Sally Mann. With this volume, Twombly also draws a direct lineage between himself and earlier photographer-artists such as Edouard Vuillard and Edgar Degas (a lineage that provides this catalogue's Proustian subtitle). Cy Twombly Photographer, Friends and Others offers an unusual and intimate self-portrait.
