19 June - 14 September 2008
Coinciding with Cy Twombly's 80th year, this will be the first retrospective in the UK for twenty years of the work of this artist. It will present a unique opportunity to examine his paintings, drawings and sculpture across his long and distinguished career. Born in 1928 in Lexington Virginia, Twombly studied in Boston, New York and Black Mountain College, Carolina. In the mid 1950s, following travels in Europe and Africa, he emerged as a prominent figure among a generation of artists working in New York that included Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. The exhibition will focus on key cycles of related works, multi-part works and some of Twombly's monumental series of paintings interspersed with more intimate rooms devoted to drawings and sculpture.
