An inveterate traveler, Twombly has always been acutely alert to locales and cultures other than his own. Since his student travels in Europe and North Africa, his sensitivity to site has provided an essential creative impetus. Included in the exhibition are works in a full range of media made between 2000 and 2007, including an untitled series of seven acrylics with wax, pencil, and collage on paper executed in a floral motif; five sculptures in wood and plaster; seven dry-print photographs examining one of the sculptures in detail ; a selection of paintings from A Gathering of Time and.

Rondeau informs us that Twombly’s procedure was anything but expressionistic: using (again) a wadded up cloth soaked with white paint to place the splotch, he then squeezed its mass to release the liquid excess. Placement, more than painterliness, is key.

James Rondeau curated several high profile exhibitions at the Institute. His curations including Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective, Charles Ray: Sculpture, 1997-2014, Steve McQueen and Cy Twombly, the Natural World, Selected Works, 2000-2007.

I am huge fan of Twombly, have many books from various shows etc though the information/insight of his work is very good in the catalog BUT the image quality is close to horrible. I am surprised and disappointed in the Art Inst. of Chicago that they would publish such a low quality of images-and this has nothing to do with the size/scale of the book- thus i gave it a 2 star and would of given it a 2.5 if I was able to but not a 3 star…. you can find better quality printing of his work...

The catalogue for the current exhibition held at the Art Institute in Chicago, this book is a small survey of Cy Twombly's recent output, from the year 2000 onwards (paintings, sculptures). Being a fan of Twombly's paintings of the late 50's and early 60's, I will refrain from giving my opinion on this late phase of his prolific career and concentrate on reviewing the book: it starts with an essay by curator James Rondeau (the author of the acclaimed "Jasper Johns: Gray" exhibition in 2008) who analyses the artist's late works in depth, showing how he has developed various series instead of producing independent unrelated paintings (such series as the Peony Blossoms paintings or III Notes from Salalah, a variation on his so-called "Blackboard paintings" of the late 60's)and endeavours to debunk the moot and oft-expressed point that brands them as being too "decorative" and "elegant". I was not entirely convinced by this somewhat pedantic essay, but it does shed new light on the works and helps the reader to form his own judgment in an unbiased way.

Then come the illustrations of the works and this is where the main drawback of the book lies: they are simply too small and do not do justice to the large-scale paintings that the exhibition covers. Nor do they give a good idea of the subtlety of the sculptures which could have been photographed from different angles. Moreover, there are no close-ups, therefore the reader does not get a chance to distinguish Twombly's brushstrokes (a real disappoinment to any Twombly aficionado...). All this is due to the inexplicably small format of the book which would suit a Klee exhibition more...Only 3 stars then.

A book filled with some of the most ecstatic, poetic work of Cy Twombly!
I had to fly to Chicago to see this exhibit after receiving this book!
Standing in rooms at Art Institute of Chicago, surrounded by Twombly's
ethereal, drippy florals, his Salallah series, his breathing, pulsing
Peonies---nothing like it!
This book captures that brilliant exhibit, and the text will help enlighten
you further. Highly recommended.

I agree with the first reviewer. I am lucky enough to live in Chicago, and have viewed the exhibit a number of times. The large panels (the seascapes, peonies, and Notes from Salalah) are amazing in person. This does not come across in this catalog; partly due to the size of the plates, but I also feel the actual production is lacking. The essay, although insightful, is limited in scope and length, and left me wanting more depth of analysis. In the end, I am glad that I have this catalog because it will trigger wonderful memories of seeing these pieces, but without that experience this book would be very disappointing.

I disagree with some of the reviewers and rate this book highly, exactly because it quite obvioulsy isn't a replacement for seeing the paintings first hand, but it is a beautifully crafted "companion" as another reviewer wrote, with a very unpretentious and well written introduction into Cy Twombly's work.

The reproductions too are beautifully crafted, on satin-type paper. A welcome relief from the barrage of big scale super high-gloss art books.
