A sad farewell to an artist

Last month, on July 5, 2011,  Cy Twombly passed away. He was a great artist and contributed beautiful works of art to our world.

"In a career that slyly subverted Abstract Expressionism, toyed briefly with Minimalism, seemed barely to acknowledge Pop Art and anticipated some of the concerns of Conceptualism, Mr. Twombly was a divisive artist almost from the start."(source)

Thanks for honoring this great artist. He ranks with Rothko as a master colorist in contemporary painting.
