#BornToday: Cy Twombly was born today in 1928. This in the image is 'Nine Discourses on Commodus', a cycle produced in the winter of 1963 and currently in the collection of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. This painting cycle is based on the murder of the Roman Emperor Aurelius Commodus. Blood, cruelty, but also a controlled use of oppositions and tensions dominate this cycle, making it, in my opinion, one of the most powerful works realised by Twombly. The Commodus paintings were first exhibited at Leo Castelly gallery in New York in 1964 receiving, as it often happens, poor reviews. I had the pleasure of seeing this cycle at the retrospective dedicated by the Centre Pompidou to the American artist in Paris.

"My line is childlike but not childish. It is very difficult to fake… to get that quality you need to project yourself into the child’s line. It has to be felt.” Cy Twombly

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.

#ArtMarketPills: 'Why should anyone want to buy a Cézanne for $800,000? What’s a little Cézanne house in the middle of a landscape? Why should it have value? Because it’s a myth. We make myths about politics, we make myths about everything. I have to deal with myths from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. And it becomes harder and harder. We live in an age of rapid obsolescence… My responsibility is the myth-making of myth and I have to go at it completely. One just can’t prudently build up a myth.' #LeoCastelli #Warhol #Cezanne #AndyWarhol @tommasocalabro @warholpopart 💰

Congratulation to Alumnus Richard Taittinger for putting together a great show: 1959-1963 American Pioneers at Castelli Gallery, a Tribute to Nassos Daphnis. The show gives us the opportunity to revisit the works of artists who challenged Abstract Expressionism in the late 1950s. This is also the occasion to celebrate the spirit of @christiesedu as two alumnae Kelly Bush and Alexandra Kurowski supported Richard in organizing the show. Well done, you made us really proud. #christieseducation #richardtaittingergallery #leocastelli #nassosdaphnis #castellipioneers @richardtaittingergallery

Ed is still my man crush. Great cover shot of an awesome mountain drawing. "I’m not really painting mountains, but an idea of mountains. Maybe I faltered and started thinking it was acceptable to do a postcard-pretty picture.” Ed Ruscha #edruscha #edwardruscha #manoftheworld #ferus #ferusgallery #irvingblum #leocastelli #gagosian #gagoaiangallery
