The Front Row

Remembering Cy Twombly

We pay our respects to American visual artist, Cy Twombly, who died yesterday in Rome at the age of 83. The icon had a close working relationship with The Menil Collection in Houston, whose Cy Twombly Gallery is devoted exclusively to the artist's works.

Josef Helfenstein, the Director of The Menil, spoke about Cy Twombly with Melissa Block, host of NPR’s All Things Considered. In remembrance of the great artist, we rebroadcast the interview today on The Front Row. You can hear the original interview in its entirety on NPR’s website here:
