Cy, Oh Sigh #CyTwombly#NineDiscoursesOnCommodus 1963 In late 1963 Twombly devoted a cycle to the Roman Emperor Commodus (161-192) son of Marcus Aurelius, remembered as cruel and bloodthirsty ruler. The paintings convey the climate of violence that prevailed during the reign marked by executions and terror. Shown at #LeoCastelli's in the spring of 1964 these paintings were roundly condemned by the critics. Won to the newly emergent Minimalism, the NY public was unable to grasp Twombly's ability to render on canvas the complex psychological phases informing life and death of the emperor, who was unable to reign without resorting to assassination.

#TBT al 1964 con "Flower Series"! En 1964, Andy Warhol presentó por primera vez la iconica "Flower Series" en la galería de su amigo Leo Castelli. Tomando la foto de la fotógrafa Patricia Caulfield, Warhol manipuló los colores originales de las flores para que resaltaran sobre el fondo de color sobrio. Años después, sus flores se convirtieron en uno de sus obras más conocidas. #TBT to 1964 with the "Flower Series" Back in 1964, Andy Warhol presented his iconic "Flower Series" for the first time at Leo Castelli's art gallery. Taking Patricia Caulfield's picture, Warhol manipulated the color of the flowers to his liking, making them stand against the dark background. Years later, his flowers have become one of his most renowned works of art. Photo | interviewmagazine.com
