Cy Twombly in the Louvre

During a recent trip to the Louvre I discovered one of the Louvre’s grand galleries has had a facelift…er, rather, a ceiling lift! The American painter Cy Twombly has repainted the ceiling, and the work is now a permanent installation. The painting is 350m2, and stretches across the entire Salle des Bronzes. Inspired by the Aegean sky, the work is truly invigorating and calming at the same time…just like the Mediterranean. Love seeing this abstract art contrasted with the classic sculptures displayed in the room!
