The impressive gallery on the upper floor was especially designed for the monumental work Lepanto (2001) by Cy Twombly .
On display in the grand gallery are works Twombly painted in his Gaeta (Italy) studio in 2008. They center on the motif and theme of the rose. The artist found inspiration in poems by Rilke, Emily Dickinson, T.S. Eliot, among others, which he modified before including them in the paintings.
