About

Cy Twombly in Rome, 1966 - Untitled #12 by Horst P. Horst Archival Pigment Print Image size: 59.4 in. H x 59.4 in. W Sheet size: 59.4 in. H x 59.4 in. W Edition of 2 Print Unframed This image is part of the Cy Twombly portfolios and is sold individually in 4 limited edition dimensions. The palazzo s “all but empty rooms, bare-windowed and pecked down”, wrote Valentin Lawford, created a “whole as beautiful in its nakedness as a tree in winter or a shell on a beach. The white of the walls, the general bareness of the rooms, highlighted each object and artifact. Horst always sought by means of the contrast of colors to emphasize each element and that these they supported each other and not competing among them. Natural lighting helps to make the colors of each element real when the photo is printed. Cy Twombly had a passion for Greek and Roman history and mythology. These busts and statues constitute apart from his paintings, his principal personal contribution to the furnishing of the rooms. "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 a photographer, subject, and home that is uniquely brilliant." All Prices are quoted as "initial price". Please note that prices and availability may change due to current sales. Additional sizes and prints are available.  Printed later under the supervision of the Horst Estate / Courtesy Horst Estate / Condé Nast ____________________ 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.”
