About

Untitled, from the “Art and Sports” portfolio, 1984 is an etching with aquatint and lithograph in colors realized by Cy Twombly on the occasion of the Winter Olympics Games 1984 in Sarajevo. Image dimensions: 75.3x54.7 cm Published by Visconti Art Spectrum, Vienna for the portfolio of the XIV Winter Olympic Games in Sarajevo. Monogramm "CT" in pencil on the lower right margin. With the pencil inscription "HC" on the lower left margin, edition of 150 plus 12 artist’s proofs. This is a precious "hors de commerce", out of commerce print. In excellent conditions. 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 Poet”. Cy Twombly's work is a direct reflection of the ancient Greco-Roman past that surrounded him in his chosen home in Rome. At first sight, his work 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.
