Cy Twombly’s abstract and gestural paintings from the 50’s and 60’s adorn his Roman home in the most fitting and organically pleasant way possible in this photo series for Vogue 1966, shot by Horst P. Horst. Cy was known for his expressionist mark making, full of high pigment smears, smudges and drips. He directed a symphony of color with each brushstroke, persuading the viewer into a new emotional realm each time. Horst’s photographs form a new composition of the artist, using his curated palette and forms, creating a beautiful, sunny window into the daily life of one of America’s most prized painters.
