Thursday Morning Twombly blART

Paint is something that I use with my hands and do all those tactile things. I really don't like oil because you can't get back into it, or you make a mess. It's not my favourite thing.. pencil is more my medium than wet paint.

Trivia: Twombly’s Lepanto (2001), a painting made of 12 panels, sold privately for more than $20 million, according to sources, after it was shown at New York’s Gagosian Gallery two years ago and at the Venice Biennale in 2001. Coronation of Sesostris (2000), a work made of ten panels, sold for around $10 million to French luxury-goods billionaire Fran├žois Pinault for his contemporary-art foundation in France. Single-canvas paintings by Twombly shown by Gagosian in New York last summer, sources say, sold for $2.5 million each. (Via)

Have a terrific Thursday!  Thanks for visiting!
