Cy Twombly (Cahier de la Collection Lambert)
Alain Lombard (foreword), Stéphane Ibars, Yvon Lambert
Actes Sud, 2022
This fifth Cahier from the Lambert Collection pays homage to the American artist Cy Twombly. With a considerable collection of nearly thirty works kept in Avignon – drawings, paintings or photographs – he is one of the emblematic artists of the Lambert Collection.
We discover there all the singularity and the force of an unclassifiable gesture which, in the aftermath of the Second World War, imposes itself in the discretion of lines deliberately warped by the artist and in the power of traces of paint which invade the canvas. with extraordinary vigor – full of life.
In a poetic step that places him outside of any school of thought, Cy Twombly plunges into the heart of these past lives in the company of the gods of antiquity or the dramaturgy of history.
