Cy Twombly Painting

It’s always good to see Australia getting some decent art. There’s usually much controversy when any public collection acquires a good painting in Australia. I think it’s one of the better painting they now own.

About Dion

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.

    Controversy is happening around the Art Gallery Of New South Wales quite a lot lately. The board of Trustees has been taken to the Supreme Court over the awarding of the 2004 Archibald Prize to a drawing when the conditions of the bequest and the entry form itself clearly require a painting.
