All three artists tested the boundaries of painting and radically challenged traditional modes of depiction. In the show, carefully considered juxtapositions will not only deepen our understanding of these artists’ respective personal styles, but also shed light on their late oeuvres. With his turbulent seascapes, the English painter William Turner (1775-1851) created an abstract pictorial language which was adopted by the Impressionists. Claude Monet (1840–1926) explored the motifs in series of water lily paintings with differing light atmospheres. Cy Twombly (1928-2011) provided impulses for a new perspective on Turner and Monet. A prominent exponent of Abstract Expressionism, the American painter developed their poetic pictorial idiom further in his mythological works.
The exhibition at the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart will not only unite three great painters, but also give visitors new insights into their individual oeuvres.
