41TujTkRe5L._SX330_BO1,204,203,200_Joshua Rivkin & Chalk: The Art and Erasure of Cy Twombly at Book Soup

Join us to hear Joshua Rivkin present his book, Chalk: The Art and Erasure of Cy Twombly. Upon first seeing Twombly’s remarkable room-size paintings, the author became obsessed with this mysterious artist and has now reconstructed his life based upon years of archival research and interviews. From his time at legendary Black Mountain College, to his canonization in a 1994 MoMA retrospective, this book presents a more personal and searching type of biography, and brings to life the story of a more complex artist than we’ve known.
