About the exhibition

Taking Twombly’s poetic examination of subjects including death, freedom, isolation, and eroticism as a basis, the exhibition brings together works by further artists including Jennifer Packer, Ellsworth Kelly, Georgia O‘Keeffe, Gabriele Münter, and not least Claude Monet, represented by his famous Water Lilies (1915). This bouquet of works from the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen and external loans reveals the complex, even contradictory motives of numerous artists over the centuries in engaging with floral subjects.
