Wilder Shores of Love, 1985
In my opinion Cy Twombly's work is to Abstract painting, what
John Singer Sargent's work is to Portrait Painting...
They are masters of both of their methods, and no one really compares...
Honestly, I think "Wilder Shores of Love" (above) is a piece that I would trade
all of my teeth for,(if I lived in a society that traded all of their teeth)?
My favorite painting ever...
Pan II, 1980
Coronation of Sesostris, 2000 (panel 8)
Fifty Days at Iliam: The Fire that Consumes All before It, 1978
Hero and Leandro (A Painting in Four Parts) Part I, 1984
Hero and Leander (To Christopher Marlowe) [Rome], 1985
Untitled I, 2005 (Bacchus)
These would fit in so many different environments, it is really quite amazing.
Traditional palm beach estate? Check. Upper East-Side apartment? Check.
Mid-Century/Boho-Luxe Silverlake villa? Check. Miami penthouse?
Check. Airstream trailer, down by the river? Check. And that is
where I would be living if I ever tried to buy one of these...
