Over many years, Cy Twombly (1928–2011) led a very secluded life. Nevertheless, all his life he always invested each place where his works were created with a central significance. For the first time, the volume just published by Verlag Schirmer/Mosel, “Cy Twombly: Homes & Studios provides an insight into Twombly’s private rooms and studios. The book has gathered together the most beautiful photographs by the artist and also by famous photographers such as Ugo Mulas and Sally Mann, who visited Twombly in his studios in New York, Rome, Bassano in Teverina, Gaeta and Lexington. Nicola Del Roscio, a long-time friend of the artist and president of the Cy Twombly Foundation, provides the biographical background to his living spaces and workspaces. The best-selling author Florian Illies describes in a text the relationship between space and photography, and will give a talk at the book presentation.


Also on this evening we want to celebrate the publication of the second volume of the catalogue raisonée of Cy Twombly’s sculptural works. This publication marks the conclusion of the scientific appraisal of all paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures by Twombly in the Verlag Schirmer/Mosel, which began in 1992. The poetic, mythically-charged sculptural objects – 147 works in total – are now accessible to the public for the first time, completely and conclusively in large, color illustrations.


The evening continues with the screening of the film Cy Dear (2018). Created for the artist's 90th birthday, the documentary pays tribute to his extensive oeuvre, guides through his life and his various creative phases. Produced by Michele Bongiorno for Good Day Films and under Andrea Bettinetti’s direction, the film takes us from Lexington, Virginia, where Twombly was born, to his second home Gaeta, Italy, passing through Paris, Munich, New York and Houston, living and working between two continents and two cultures. The director Andrea Bettinetti will be present.
