Note I
Cy Twombly painting
American painter working primarily in last half of twentieth century. Interested in writing, graffiti, poetry, and literature. Created gestural works like that of the Abstract Expressionists, but Twombly's approach differs because of his interest in writing as opposed to automatic or subconscious gestures. His paintings often include drips, scribbles, and sometimes images. Private collection
