about this item

The years 1970-71 were a very prolific period inwhich Cy Twombly, influenced by Leonardo da Vinci'sDeluge drawings, created his iconic style: scribbled,calligraphic, and graffiti-like works on solid fields. Inthe late Kirk Varnedoe's words, this--most minimal--phase of Twombly's oeuvre is characterized by a"nervous, obsessed energy, yet its trance-like mono -tony also opens out into a sense of serene, oceanicdissolution, in a nebular cloud of great depth and infinitecomplexity". His drawings of this phase featuredin Vol. V of his Catalogue Raisonné of Drawings include,among others, acclaimed extensive series such asRoman Notes, Study for Treatise on the Veil, andBeyond (A System of Passing).
