Cy Twombly
'Three dialogues'
Original exhibition poster on heavy wove paper, c1977
First edition of 500
Galerie Yvon Lambert, Paris
Offset lithograph
Size: 29.5" x 20.8" (74.9cm x 52.8cm)
Condition: excellent
With gallery certificate of authenticity

NOTE: An original, first edition poster designed by Cy Twombly for his exhibition at Galerie Yvon Lambert, Paris in 1977. The limited edition poster is in excellent condition. Please do not confuse this poster with the lower quality later reprints we see sold cheaply as originals.

Cy Twombly (1928-2011) was an American painter, sculptor and photographer. He belonged to the generation of Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns but chose to live in Italy after 1957. His paintings of large-scale, freely-scribbled, calligraphic and graffiti-like works on solid fields of mostly gray, tan, or off-white colors are in the permanent collections of most of the museums of modern art around the world, including the Menil Collection in Houston, the Tate Modern in London or the New York's Museum of Modern Art. He was also commissioned for the ceiling of a room of the Musée du Louvre in Paris.

Investment potential
Original first edition exhibition posters by major artists is a strong growth area in art investment. For a long time they were undervalued, but that is changing hugely. We predict that the market for first edition posters will increase exponentially. Simply put, we would not sell them if we did not have an arts business to run. The more cheaply printed reproduction posters will never be worth more than you pay for them. We stock only original first edition posters. And remember that condition is all-important: we deal only in very good/excellent condition posters. Our gallery certificate adds significant weight to a purchase, especially if you ever come to sell.
