Text by Charles Olson. Curator of the Dia Art Foundation: Henry Geldzahler. Photography by Paul Hester.

Cy Twombly was an American painter, sculptor and photographer. He was only a student at the Black Mountain College in North Carolina in 1951, when the American poet Charles Olson, who was instructor and director of studies there, visited his studio, part of a group of small wooden out-buildings designed by Walter Gropius. The poems written by Olson almost a decade later, apart from showing the influence of Pound and Melville, also display a strong and deep tie to Cy Twombly's art, of which he seems to have had an early appreciation. The exhibition features text by Olson, shedding thereby a personal light on Twombly's work, seen through the eyes of another great artist who admired him. 32 pages. 8 x 8 inches.

Lavishly illustrated with 24 reproductions of the artist's works. Features text by Charles Olson. Features an artworks checklist.
