On My Way to Steal Ur Cy Cy Twombly, The Four Seasons: Spring,
Summer, Autumn, and Winter,
1993-94 Date night with bae at the #TheModernParty at @TheMuseumofModernArt last night! While Cy is always a highlight, I was honestly blown away by the entirety of #TheLongRun, the museum’s current special exhibition. As described by the MoMA, “by chronicling the continued experimentation of artists long after their breakthrough moments, The Long Run suggests that invention results from sustained critical thinking, persistent observation, and countless hours in the studio.” These supposed post-breakthrough masterpieces, drawn entirely from the MoMA’s permanent collection and including this exquisite late cycle from Twombly, are a profound testament to the ceaseless creative drive which fuels, defines, and differentiates true artistic genius. Not too bad for date night, eh?
