cy twombly

Cy Twombly will be eighty-one in April, but he is still turning out impressive and intelligent work. His newest series, "The Rose," consists of five panels, each twenty-four feet long, on which are painted "three open roses in bleeding shades of red, orange, yellow, or purple, with a curtain of dripping paint that gives them a dewy, life-like quality." The piece will be on view at Gagosian in London through May 9th.
