Edwin Parker "Cy" Twombly, (April 25, 1928 – July 5, 2011) is an American painter, draughtsman, printmaker and sculptor from Lexington, Kentucky. He served in the U.S. army as a cryptologist and we can see this work experience as having an influence on his painting style. Many refer to his paintings as looking like scribbles or calligraphy on a blackboard. He steered clear of color using gray, tan, or off-white in his works.
