Abstract painting …Untitled By Cy Twombly…passionate use of adjacent hues.

It is all about the color and the line movement made by the color.  A passionate use of adjacent hues. To write about this painting with two sentences is a huge injustice, but I was thinking about it in terms of color at first. Then I remembered this wonderful artist died a few months ago, leaving a large body of work that was at times misunderstood and criticized, I suppose like all art.  Anyway, you might explore and learn a little more about this interesting contemporary artist at http://www.cytwombly.info/ as the link from the painting did not attach.  There was also an article in the NY Times last July, at the time of his death, that gives more insight into his art.  When questioned about reputation and artistic acclaim, Mr. Twombly said: “It’s something I don’t think about.  If it happens, it happens, but don’t bother me with it. I couldn’t care less.” On November 11, 2011 a 2006 acrylic Twombly painting, Untitled, sold for $9 million.  The highest price of the Phillips auction.
Beautiful use of color and natural movement.
