Mary Jacobus, On Cy Twombly
Wednesday, Mar. 7, 2018 – Wednesday, Mar. 7, 2018
07:00 PM – 08:00 PM
Don't miss this rare opportunity to hear British scholar and art historian Mary Jacobus demonstrate how poetry was a vital source for Twombly’s painting, as described in her rich analysis Reading Cy Twombly: Poetry in Paint, published by Princeton University Press. Jacobus will focus her lecture on, and deliver it next to, Twombly’s powerful Untitled Painting (Say Goodbye, Catullus, to the Shores of Asia Minor), 1994.
This special program is made possible in part by a gift from the Jacob Scanlan Fund.
