“experience European cultural climates both intellectual and aesthetic”

In 1948 Twombly attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, developing an interest in aspects of Dada and Surrealism, especially the art of Kurt Schwitters and Alberto Giacometti.  After a year at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, he moved to New York City to study at the Art Students’ League, where he first met Robert Rauschenberg.  Encouraged by his fellow artist, Twombly enrolled in Black Mountain College near Ashville, North Carolina, where he studied under Franz Kline, Ben Shahn, and Robert Motherwell (who soon came to consider Twombly “the most accomplished young painter and one of the most ‘natural’ artists of his generation”).  That same year, Twombly had his first solo show in New York, at the Kootz Gallery, some saw in Twombly’s work an affinity with Kline’s black-and-white gestural expressionism and with Paul Klee’s innocent, childlike imagery.
