In conversation with Nick Serota, the Director of Tate Britain in London, Cy Twombly gave the following insight into his attitude towards painting.
“I’m not a professional painter, since I don’t go to the studio and work nine to five like a lot of artists. When something hits me, or I see a painting, or when I see something in nature, it gives me a thing and I go for it. But I don’t care if I don’t go for three or four months. You know, when it comes it comes.”
