77 hours in Paris : Centre Pompidou

 

Centre Pompidou currently has a floor dedicated to the work of Cy Twombly. He’s an artist that I had to take some time for to get use to. I’ve seen a few of his pieces in Museum Brandhorst (Munich) about six years ago and I, as a teenager, wasn’t that impressed by what I was seeing. Don’t get me wrong, I have my reasons, so bare with me. It’s mostly because my mind wasn’t that filled with knowledge and my view on the arts wasn’t as developed as it is now. The following years I would sporadically come across some of his pieces in different museums. Last December I set foot in Centre Pompidou and I was blown away by all the pieces present.

I finally got to see the whole range Twombly was capable of. I could stand face to face with his work and examine every little detail, which personally makes his work so interesting. The richness of colours and texture is present in every medium he uses. He might be one of those artists of which people think “Even a child could do this, why is this art?”, but on the contrary. I’ll let you see for yourself, through the photos I made or even during your own visit to the exhibition. You have until the 24th of April 2017 to book your ticket and expand your mind.
