Cy Twombly 's work is a direct reflection of the ancient Greco-Roman past that surrounded him in his chosen home in Rome. At first sight, his work his work, mainly graffiti-like scribbles and scratches may look childish. But it is nothing of the kind, and the result of a brilliant man, with a sophisticated technique. From drawings with crayon and house-paint, to experimentation with symbols and numbers, to collage, to paint dripping, Cy Twombly experimented a lot of different techniques.
