From the Inside Flap
Cy Twombly is undoubtedly the most sensitive mind among the greats of contemporary art. His work finds its most personal expression in the small, intimately sized drawings which he has from the very outset produced by way of accompaniment to his paintings: they not only reflect all the stages in the development of his painterly oeuvre but essentially also transcend it. Our book covers the major retrospective which the Hermitage has organized to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the City of St. Petersburg.

I tend to only review books that I like. I bought this one in 2009, after seeing his show at the Chicago Art Institute. It provides a good representation of his work on paper over a 50 year period. It's sizable and the images are well reproduced. I sat with a friend, after dinner, and turned every page of this book in awe. I also highly recommend the book from the show: Cy Twombly: Cycles and Seasons
Great at any price.

I think i was missing the thematic development behind Cy, before I bought this book. The quality of his "notes" paintings is very good.
A beautiful book - excellent reproductions

A beautiful book - excellent reproductions. But some of the reviews are misleading -- this is NOT a survey of Twombly's paintings - it's just works ON PAPER...
Good personalized service
