    Excellent book and a great value at the price This is well illustrated and contains multiple essays by those who knew Twombly at all stages of his career Particularly enjoy early reviews Nothing there, says Donald Judd The New York Times thinks the scribbles are ridiculous And then the Europeans who loaded up on his work, everything they could get their hands on, after her left unappreciative New York, enthralled by Pop at the time, for Italy where he enjoyed success for the remainder of his life Nice full page illustrations Probably the second best text on his work, large and weighty, in every sense.

    I love Twombly, but this book is alright So much of Twombly is the size and presence of his work I wish this book was formatted a little larger so that the pieces didn t have to be scaled small with big white margins Also, while this book includes many of his works across all stages of his artistic development, it is certainly not close to being comprehensive There are other books that do one or the other of the above better This book is a good standard for someone hoping to have a little Cy in their lives.
