Please note that prices and availability may change due to current sales. ______________________ On a stone-slab table, a miniature scale model of the Parthenon. Cy Twombly had a passion of Greek and Roman history and mythology. His constant rearrangement of the contents of the apartment is in itself the expression of an almost chronic désoeuvrement that might be as fatal as Oblomov's if it were not that he actually finds his eventual inspiration in the seeming alternatives to work: reading, traveling, or simply walking in Rome. "Amongst the vast array of interiors and portraits done by Horst P. Horst during the Around That Time years, the most striking example of this oeuvre, is the brilliantly executed, Cy and Tatiana Twombly, Rome, 1966, portfolio. The images represent a coming together of photographer, subject and home that is uniquely brilliant." -Ivan Shaw, Corporate Photography, Director, Condé Nast Editions. Horst P. Horst German-American, 1906-1999 (born Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann) was one of the towering figures of 20th century fashion photography. Best known for his work with Vogue—who called him “photography’s alchemist”—Horst rose to prominence in Paris in the interwar years, publishing his first work with the magazine in 1931. In the decades that followed, Horst’s experimentations with radical composition, nudity, double exposures, and other avant-garde techniques would produce some of the most iconic fashion images ever, like Mainbocher Corset and Lisa with Harp (both 1939). As The New York Times once described, “Horst tamed the avant-garde to serve fashion.” Though associated most closely with fashion photography, Horst captured portraits of many of the 20th century’s brightest luminaries, dabbling with influences as far-ranging as Surrealism and Romanticism. “I like taking photographs, because I like life,” he once said. “And I love photographing people best of all, because most of all I love humanity.”
