Critical monograph on influential American artist Twombly, best known for his minimalist drawings and large-scale paintings that blend text, figuration, and rhythmic scratches, published to accompany a 2002 exhibition at the Daros Collection in Zurich curated by Eva Keller and Regula Malin. Illustrated with 50 color plates of Twombly's work, and with ten essays by leading art critics including John Berger, Heiner Bastian, Yve-Alain Bois, and Harald Szeemann. Text in English and German.
