    Cy Twombly in Rome 1966 - Untitled #1 Canvas
    image size 55.1 in x 55.1 in
    Framed size: 57.1 in x 57.1 in D 3 in.

    A Large archival canvas.
    The canvas is already mounted on a stretcher and framed in a standard brown wood gallery exhibition frame.

    The palazzo s “all but empty rooms, bare-windowed and pecked down”, wrote Valentin Lawford, created a “whole as beautiful in its nakedness as a tree in winter or a shell on a beach. The white of the walls, the general bareness of the rooms, highlighted each object, and artifact. Horst always sought by means of the contrast of colors to emphasize each element and that these they supported each other and not competing among them. Natural lighting helps to make the colors of each element real when the photo is printed.

    Cy Twombly had a passion for Greek and Roman history and mythology. These busts and statues constitute apart from his paintings, his principal personal contribution to the furnishing of the rooms.

    "Amongst the vast array of interiors and portraits done by Horst P. Horst during the Around That Time years, the most striking example of this oeuvre, is the brilliantly executed, Cy and Tatiana Twombly, Rome, 1966, portfolio. The images represent a coming together of a photographer, subject, and home that is uniquely brilliant."

    Printed later under the supervision of the Horst Estate / Courtesy Horst Estate / Condé Nast.

Horst P. Horst

Germany Born in: 1906

On the 14th of August 1906, in Weißenfels-an-der-Saale in Germany, a legend was born. Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann, known as Horst P. Horst, is considered a master in his field. He died on the 19th of November 1999 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. 

After studying art at Kunstgewerbeschule (Hambourg), Horst moved to Paris in 1930 to train with Le Corbusier. Often spending time with bourgeois circles, he met George Hoyningen-Huene, the director of Vogue France studios. Encouraged by him, Horst threw himself into photography and published his first pictures with the French fashion magazine. In 1937 he left Paris for New York, where he met Coco Chanel. Over thirty years of collaboration and several dozen world-famous photographs ensued. During this period, he was admired and supported by important members of the fashion world such as Diana Vreeland. Following the closure of Vogue studios in 1951, he devoted himself to his own studio and produced numerous photos of interiors, landscapes, still lifes and nudes.

Nicknamed the photographer of elegance, Horst is best known for his photographs of glamorous and sophisticated women. He would prepare his shots meticulously, combining dramatic lighting, attention to detail and theatrical poses. His work is largely influenced by Greek sculpture, for which he had enormous admiration. “He photographed women as goddesses: inaccessible and calm Olympians". His photos are part of a Surrealist and Neoclassical trend.

Adopted by the fashion world, Horst began exhibiting his work in major art galleries from 1932 until the end of his career. His works have been assembled and published in numerous books: Horst, His Work, Horst: Photographer of Style, etc. In 1989 he received the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Lifetime Achievement Award, and in 1996, the Master of Photography Award from the International Center of Photography (New York).

His works have been exhibited at the Fortuny Palace in Venice (1989), the Louvre in Paris (1991), the Museum Ludwig Cologne (1992), the National Portrait Gallery (2001) and at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London (2007).
