Cy Twombly's show at the Gagosian on 21st street is sparse yet beautiful. He fills the massive space with large paintings on wood that offer a simple, subtle delicacy to the cavernous gallery. The work, very different than his usual scribbled doodles, consist of peonies, "the favored flowers of Japanese aesthetic contemplation." He achieves a sense of contemplated splendor.
