Cy Twombly's Things book. In this revelatory monograph, Kate Nesin first establishes, then evaluates the artist’s long engagement with the historical and contemporary limits of sculpture, both as medium and as word.

Cy Twombly (1928–2011) is widely acknowledged as one of the postwar period’s most influential American artists, yet his sculptures are little known. From 1946 onward, he made hundreds of rarely exhibited found-object assemblages, often painted or plastered over with diverse coatings of white. Across decades, Twombly thus developed a singular, strikingly consistent body of work, despite the shifting status of sculpture during his lifetime.

Cy Twombly : Eight Sculptures. By (author) Kate Nesin.

Cy Twombly (1928–2011) is widely acknowledged as one of the postwar period’s most influential American artists, yet his sculptures are little known. From 1946 onward, he made hundreds of rarely exhibited found-object assemblages, often painted or plastered over with diverse coatings of white. Across decades, Twombly thus developed a singular, strikingly consistent body of work, despite the shifting status of sculpture during his lifetime. In this revelatory monograph, Kate Nesin first establishes, then evaluates the artist’s long engagement with the historical and contemporary limits of sculpture, both as medium and as word. While others have described Twombly’s three-dimensional works as timeless, transcendent, and poetic, Nesin complicates our sense of their so-called poetry, focusing on the prosaic, conspicuously material operations of these sculptural “things,” and emphasizing the inherent difficulties as well as possibilities of the language used to characterize them. Through close readings of individual works and in-depth analyses of certain guiding concerns, such as surface, naming, gaps, and repetitions, she illuminates Twombly's remarkable sculptural practice. 
  • I have never been a fan of Twombly's work. The scribbles and smeared paint, the scrawled and often marginally readable words and phrases. I am still baffled as to how his painting and drawing are met with such overwhelming critical acclaim. But I do like his sculpture. This is often the case with me; I like very little sculpture in general, but when an artist tackles the medium with originality and makes a body of work that is unlike any other sculpture, then my imagination is activated. Same as with, say, Eva Hesse, Martin Puryear, and David Smith. As with his painting and drawing, Twombly refuses refined and "finished" work, sometimes leaving blobs of plaster and drips of white house paint plainly in evidence. But in this case the originality and uniqueness of his sculpture brings something fresh to the medium. The book is an excellent, sometimes brilliant monograph on his work, but I would have preferred a separate section of plates (and lots more of them and all in color) rather than the relatively few offered, interspersed with the text throughout. But no great matter...the book is a welcome exploration of an intriguing body of work.

  • Very good investigation of Twombly's sculpture. Little known objects come into focus . The mystery of why these sculptures are so Quiet is presented well. The book relates Twombly's painting attitude to his 3d work in a meaningful way !
