Cy Twombly: Treatise on the Veil
December 8 - February 14, 2010
1515 Sul Ross, Houston, TX 77006
"Painted in Rome in 1970, Treatise on the Veil marks a critical period in the career of Cy Twombly. One of the American artist’s largest canvases, measuring nearly 35 feet in length, the work, which the Menil acquired in 1998, is rarely on public display. Cy Twombly: Treatise on the Veil will showcase this monumental painting, following its year-long loan to the acclaimed Tate Modern retrospective, Cycles and Seasons."
