This Friday we’re stepping into the world of Cy Twombly. His Roman apartment, photographed in 1966 by Horst P. Horst for Vogue, was his creative oasis. Lined with his paintings and filled with objects that spoke deeply to his aesthetic, his home was a work of art itself.

This shot, with its close cropping  and massive scale of the painting, makes it easy to think the walls themselves are marked by Twombly. Just imagine what it would be like to be enveloped by Twombly’s luminous composition, energetic marks, and palette!
