Artist Cy Twombly (1928-2011)

Garden of Art CaféCy Twombly was born in Virginia and died in 2011 in Rome, Italy after moving there in 1957. Known for his modern abstract painting, sculpting and calligraphy, Mr Twombly often used mythological subjects to inspire his work. He was also known for a quirky habit of often painting while sitting on the shoulders of a friend! He felt he was able to get larger, freer brushstrokes by engaging in this practice.

Mr. Twombly held his first solo showing in 1951 in New York. He has notable works in the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate Museum and in numerous collections. In November 2014 one of his untitled paintings from his “Black-board ” series was sold at auction for $69.6 million dollars! One of my favorite paintings of his is a relatively free-hand, childlike floral painting with black lines, circles and pale pink flower shapes.

Garden of Art (shown above) was created using a very good Hop Haus Stout from Hop Haus  in Gresham, Oregon.

Artist Georg Baselitz (1938-present)

Garden of Art j 2 1 16Georg Baselitz is a well regarded neo-expressionist born in Germany but living in Austria since 2013. Mr. Baselitz began painting at age 14. He enrolled in an East Berlin art school in 1956 then was quickly expelled due to his “sociopolitical immaturity” during those Cold War days when East Berlin was under Communist rule.

After his expulsion, Mr. Baselitz was able to enroll in a West Berlin art school the following year. He completed his studies without controversy. By 1963, Mr. Baselitz held his first solo exhibition but two of his works were seized by the authorities. During the late 1960’s Baselitz  began painting in large formats, including his 1969 ‘inverted motifs’ that included “The Wood On Its Head”.

Mr. Baselitz is very well known for painting “The Gleaner” and “Alder”, for his inverted images, landscapes and seascapes. He has shown his art throughout Europe and was the designer of a 1994 stamp for the French Foreign Service.
