Plate No. III, from Natural History, Part I, Mushrooms (Bastian 44)
Cy Twombly (1928–2011) developed a gestural vocabulary in which each line and color is infused with energy, spirituality, and meaning. Emerging as a prominent figure in the mid-1950s following extensive travels throughout Europe and North Africa, he produced works that are simultaneously personal and mythological, allowing narrative, language, and inner visions to erupt from his intimate, abstract notations.
In excellent condition, with some undulation of the paper as is common with float-mounted prints over time. Framed with UV-protected plexiglass and a natural wood frame.
Signed in pencil and numbered
