New space, old hat. Larry Gagosian has expanded his gallery empire to Paris. Abstract expressionist Cy Twombly opens the location, offering 5 new paintings. The artist, one of undeniable stature, fits the Gagosian mold – big names for big spenders. Not a knock, but a reality that keeps the Gagosian clock ticking.
Arrested Motion writes, “Camino Real, which is a reference to a Tennessee Williams play, looks like an extension of Twombly’s Rose and Peony series, with its vivid colors and effusive gestures. Also on view are editions of the artist’s bronze sculptures. If you are in Paris, stop by the gallery before Dec. 23 and witness the attempt at world domination yourself.”
4 rue de Ponthieu
Camino Real is on view through December 23, 2010.
