Rothko: The Color Field Paintings

30,00 € 27,90 €

Mark Rothko’s Seagram murals have returned to Tate Britain, some 50 years after the artist donated them to Tate Gallery. The murals rejoin the world’s largest collection of paintings by one of Britain’s most celebrated artists, J.M.W. Turner. Intended as objects of contemplation, Rothko's nine abstract paintings were donated to Tate by the artist due to his deep affection for British art, especially Turner.

Cy Twombly: Making Past Present

Christine Kondoleon y Kate Nesin

50,00 € 46,50 €

On Display: Tate Modern Natalie Bell Building Level 2 East Discover the work of Cy Twombly, whose pared-back approach engages with ancient history and myth. Cy Twombly was a North American artist who spent much of his career in Italy. He was fascinated by the cultures of ancient Greece and Rome. In his paintings he often referred to historical or mythological figures, or included fragments of classical poetry. The three paintings in this room are named after Bacchus. He was the Roman god of wine and intoxication, known to the Greeks as Dionysus. His rituals involved drunkenness and ecstatic dancing. In ancient myth, he was also associated with violence and his followers were depicted as eating the raw flesh of animals. In the 1950s Twombly wrote that the act of painting could come out of ‘one ecstatic impulse’. Made 50 years later, these swirls of paint convey a similar intensity. They were made with a brush attached to the end of a pole, enabling Twombly to capture the energy of an unbroken movement across a large canvas. The brush was soaked in paint, which dripped down the canvas, its red colour evoking both wine and blood.
