kevin and i went to the brand new brandhorst museum in munich conveniently located near the rest of the pinakotheks in a sort of museum “complex” in schwabing, my old stomping ground.

the building itself is quite nice, but what was really the best, among the mainly post-modern and contemporary collection, were these incredible, huge, strikingly colorful paintings by cy twombly. i have never really loved his textual/graffiti-style abstractions, but the colors in these more recent paintings of roses (2008) were BRILLIANT in many senses of the word and the sheer size of them was enough to hypnotize. check it out:
