The Rose (2008) by Cy Twombly

This is one from five new monumental paintings by American artist Cy Twombly, recently shown at Gagosian's Britannia Street gallery in London. Stanzas from "Les roses" by poet Rainer Maria Rilke, that inspired this series, are inscribed on the last panel of each painting. I can't believe he did those with 81 years! That is amazing. It shows, that the spirit does stay young and alive if you let it develop and don't loose touch with live!
