Twombly and Poussin

Hero and Leandro by Cy Twombly

Hero and Leandro

I can’t believe it was my first ever visit to the Dulwich Picture Gallery, especially as I live a short distance away, but I went to see ‘Twombly and Poussin: Arcadian Painters’ yesterday.¬†It’s a lovely gallery and I really enjoyed seeing the Cy Twombly pictures in the show, the last exhibition of his work before his recent death.

They also have a stunning¬†Rembrandt, I’m always surprised by how good Rembrandt is whenever I see his work.

Cy Twombly RIP

Very saddened to read about the death of the artist Cy Twombly, a painter whose work I really admire.

His death comes just as a show including his work, Twombly and Poussin: Arcadian Painters, opens at the The Dulwich Picture Gallery which is local to me.

Really looking forward to seeing this show, I’ve seen some amazing examples of his work in galleries all over the place in recent years, there were some great ones from a series called Bacchus at Tate Modern last time I was there.
