Cy Twombly 1928-2011

Randy Kennedy writing in The New York Times on the idiosyncratic painter who had lived and worked in Rome since 1957 : "But Mr. Twombly, a tall, rangy Virginian who once practiced drawing in the dark to make his lines less purposeful, steadfastly followed his own program and looked to his own muses: often literary ones like Catullus, Rumi, Pound and Rilke. He seemed to welcome the privacy that came with unpopularity."
