Format: Paperback
This is the catalogue for the current Tate exhibition that focuses on Twombly's various series that have marked his long career (the Ferragosto paintings from 1961, the Blackboard paintings from the late 1960's, the Bolsena paintings from 1969, the later Four Seasons cycles, etc). Without being a retrospective, this book sheds a new light on a painter that has gained in stature over the years. It enables the reader to discover a coherence and continuity in an apparently haphazard body of works and shows what a master of color and composition the artist is. The high-quality illustrations add to the value of this book which, in my opinion, is one of the best published recently on the artist (I own more than 20 books on Cy Twombly).

Format: Paperback
Don't be misled by the different total page numbers given for this and the hardback - I ordered both
and received two versions with the same text and illustrations (the 192 page total is incorrect - it actually
matches the hardback).
A wonderful book though, which should be seen as a worthwhile supplement to the recent publications of the
Leeman monograph and the 50 years of work on paper.
There is some duplication with the Leeman, but not enough to hold back.

No reproduction can approach the texture and fascination of a real Cy Twombly. This beautifully produced book lets you imagine some lovely things. Nice photo essay on his life, too.

I am a profound admirer of Twombly's work and, so, I acquired already 8 books about him. This one, in my perspective, is the most enlightened with an amazing compilation of writings that helped me in some works I have made. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to be inspired.
