Did Cy Twombly use oil paint?

1 Answer
Yes, Cy Twombly did use oil paint, although his method was quite unique. He would run his fingers in the paint to create channels, and would then use oil paint in ‘globs’. House paint overtop would then merge the paints into a completed piece. Shop a selection of Cy Twombly’s pieces from some of the world’s top art dealers on 1stDibs.
