Owing a debt to existential philosophy, psychoanalysis and romanticist notions of the sublime, Abstract Expressionism was the first American visual art to gain worldwide recognition, and artist Cy Twombly was at the forefront of the movement along with others like Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg. Twombly’s work explores the use of lines, letters, and color to affect the expression of emotion as a pictorial event contained within a single work. This photolithograph of his Gaeta Sets was taken from a rare, limited-edition book and offers a play of emotions in pigment.
