About

Sarajevo 1984 - Winter Olympics is an original color lithograph on paper, realized by Cy Twombly, in the occasion of the 1984 Winter Olympic Games. Image dimensions: 75.3x54.7 cm Ultra-rare artist proof before the color, monogrammed in pencil on lower right, and with a pencil inscription on lower left "H.C.". Out of commerce print. As the inscriptions and the Cy Twombly's studio confirms. This contemporary artwork is in the perfect Twombly "graffito" style and in excellent condition. Cy Twombly was one of the artists who realized an original artwork for this important event. Twombly referenced the ancient origins of the games by using the same characteristic scrawl that he had previously used for his 1976 series "Six Latin Writers and Poets". Cy twombly's artwork is a direct reflection of the ancient Greco-Roman past that surrounded him in his chosen home in Rome. At first sight, his work mainly graffiti-like scribbles and scratches may look childish. But it is nothing of the kind, and the result of a brilliant man, with a sophisticated technique. From drawings with crayon and house-paint, to experimentation with symbols and numbers, to collage, to paint dripping, Cy Twombly experimented a lot of different techniques.
