Project Description

This grouping’s title, Broken Classicism, suggests how the artistic ideals of balance and harmony might be reconsidered as fragment and ruin. Cy Twombly’s modern, graphic lettering of ancient authors’ names, and Robert Indiana’s contemporary interpretation of Greek stone markers, embody this theme of classicism—both mined and modified as a source of inspiration for contemporary artists.
