Though perhaps best known for his paintings, Cy Twombly (b. 1928, d. 2011) developed a singular body of sculpture over the course of his career. These sculptures are composed using everyday materials such as wood, metal, and found objects, to which he applied a delicate and unifying layer of white paint. The resulting group of works appear not so much as a progression as a series as they do, individually, as a metamorphosis of material. Selected in collaboration with the artist before his death, this group of five sculptures including Untitled, Lexington, 1951; Cycnus, Rome, 1978; Anabasis, Bassano in Teverina, 1980; Thicket, Formia-Roma, 1981; and Thicket, Gaeta, 1991; together represent the elegant yet idiosyncratic breadth of Twombly’s sculptural practice.
