Twombly + Poussin

The recently deceased Cy Twombly is reported to have said, "I would’ve liked to have been Poussin, if I’d had a choice, in another time.” His work can now be seen alongside the C17 classical painter in Twombly and Poussin: Arcadian Painters at John Soane's wonderful Dulwich Picture Gallery (29 June - 25 September 2011). Read Julian Bell's article, Cy Twombly and Nicolas Poussin: the odd couple.
