1974

About

Collage, 1974. Dimensions: 76x56 cm. This work is part of the 1974 suite entitled Natural History, Part 1, Mushrooms , including 10 lithographs with collages, printed by Matthieu Studio, Zurich and published in Berlin by Propyläen Verlag. The second suite in this series, Natural History Part II (Some Trees of Italy) was produced by the artist two years later, in 1976. Twombly, an American painter who moved to Rome in 1957, and immediately chose the city as his new home, always distinguished himself from his contemporaries by his extreme originality. This often made it difficult to categorize him into any particular genre or movement. In this work, Twombly uses a quasi-scientific presentation together with his characteristically expressive graphic language. Twombly appropriates and riffs on botanical illustrations of mushroom and tree species from an unidentified specimen book.
