1 day 23 hours ago The Art Institute of Chicago “It's instinctive in a certain kind of painting... It's like a nervous system… The feeling is going on with the task. The line is the feeling, from a soft thing, a dreamy thing, to something hard, something arid, something lonely, something ending, something beginning.”
Happy birthday, Cy Twombly!
