The Artist Birthday Series

Cy Twombly

Twombly suffered from cancer for several years toward the end of his life, and died on the 5th of July in 2011 in Rome. He was survived by a son, Cyrus Alessandro Twombly (who is also a painter and resides in Rome), and his longtime companion, Nicola Del Roscio. Del Roscio currently manages Twombly’s estate, defending the artists oeuvre in a lawsuit in 2013, as well as heading the management, digitization and research to create the Cy Twombly Archive.
