Though perhaps best known for his paintings, Cy Twombly (1928–2011) developed a singular body of sculpture over the course of his 60-year career. These sculptures are made from quotidian 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. This book marks the long-term exhibition of five Twombly sculptures at Glenstone Museum. The catalogue includes an original essay by scholar Kate Nesin and never-before-published archival images of the sculptures in the artist's studios in Italy courtesy of the Nicola Del Roscio Archives.
