Did you know...?

If you visit the didactic area of Stories of History you will find out, through the words of Georg Baselitz and Cy Twombly themselves, the importance of history or of the use of color and language in their works. Written words (quotes) and audiovisual materials will give you the clues. You can also explore what well-known art specialists have written on the protagonists of the exhibition.


"I really do paint these pictures upside down, meaning, that’s how the whole painting is set up from the start; the composition has its own equilibrium that it would lose if you put it ‘the right way up’." Georg Baselitz

"Painting is … fusing of ideas, fusing of feelings, fusing projected on atmosphere." Cy Twombly
