Twombly gets our vote
Twombly and Poussin at the Dulwich Picture Gallery
Ruth and I travelled up to Dulwich (thats Southern Rail to East Croydon and a red 197 via Penge) then we walked in the September sun through Dulwich park into the Dulwich Picture Gallery. We found the show absolutely fantastic, wonderful. Not too big, not too busy, Look, Lunch (fish pie) and back to look again - very civilized indeed. The information was very helpful - differences and similarities abounded - loved it x. Both artists in different ages moved to Rome at the age of 30, both Arcadian painters steeped in the poets. A sensitivity that is stroked and smeared, drawn and dribbled, written and removed on paintings and palimpsests of sheer pleasure.
Go and see it while you can at Dulwich Picture Gallery -
