Cy Twombly’s Iliad

May 20–October 8, 2017

Get a fresh look at Cy Twombly's ambitious retelling of Homer's Iliad.

Cy Twombly's Fifty Days at Iliam returns to the museum from a retrospective of the artist's work at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Twombly (1928–2011) initially selected the six sculptures in this exhibition for the museum in 2011 as complements to Fifty Days at Iliam. Five of those works are recent gifts of the Cy Twombly Foundation.
