RIP Cy Twombly

New Yorker Cy Twomly, one of the greate abstract artists of the past sixty years, sadly passed away earlier this month.  His works will live on forever.

Twombly's work went on display as part of Twombly and Poussin: Arcadian Painters at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London from June 29, 2011 less than a week before Twombly's Death. The show was built on a quote by Twombly stating that “I would’ve liked to have been Poussin, if I’d had a choice, in another time” and is the first time that his work was put in an exhibition with Poussin.
