Cy Twombly Photographer, Friends and Others: Le Temps Retrouv

Cy Twombly Photographer, Friends and Others: Le Temps Retrouv

Hardback Publication Date: 30/04/2012

 
Although world-famous for his paintings and sculptures, Cy Twombly (1928-2011) was also a photographer, and his practice of photographing interiors, the sea and still lifes, as well as his paintings and sculptures, spanned the duration of his 60-year career. This massive two-volume catalogue gathers this lesser-known aspect of the artist's output, contextualizing it through an exhibition that Twombly himself curated at the Collection Lambert in Avignon. His selection of works was both original and revealing: Jacques Henri Lartigue's albums, the marine horizons of Hiroshi Sugimoto, the serial photographs of Ed Ruscha and Sol Lewitt, and the portraits of Diane Arbus and his close friend Sally Mann. With this publication, Twombly also draws a direct lineage between himself and earlier photographer-artists such as douard Vuillard and Edgar Degas (a lineage that provides this catalogue's Proustian subtitle). The two volumes are held together with a blue printed ribbon.
