Cy Twombly, Photographer

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Cy Twombly is often lauded as one of the world’s greatest modern painters.  But paint wasn’t his only medium.  Twombly was a prolific photographer too, and had taken pictures since he was a young student.  Normally shot in and around his studios with an instant camera, then enlarged into blurry, ethereal prints, Twombly’s photographs are characterised by an intimate proximity with his subjects paired with a soft, romantic sensibility.  The images above (and others) appear in Cy Twombly – Photographs III, an anthology of images selected by the late artist that was released earlier this year.
