"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."
Twombly is regarded as one of the most important representative of a generation of artists who distanced themselves from abstract expressionism.
A look at some of my favourite paintings by Twobly
Today, the Twombly's works can be found in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Courtauld Institute in London, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which in 1989 devoted an entire room to his 10-painting suite, Fifty Days at Iliam, based on Alexander Pope’s translation of the Iliad.
