Taking cues from the Dada movement and
from the work of Swiss sculptor Alberto
Giacometti, Cy Twombly (American, 1928–
2011) created poetic objects whose serene
white surfaces and allusive forms seem to
recall remote worlds of myth and the ancient
past. After reaching an indisputable maturity
in his early sculpture, created from 1946 to
1959, Twombly returned to working in three
dimensions in the mid-1970s and continued
to cast new works up until his passing in 2011.
