Cy Twombly at the MUMOK

Our last stop during Vienna's Long Night of Museums was the Museum Moderner Kunst (MUMOK). It was about the middle of the night, and we ambled through the museum trying to take in as much as we could in our tired states. My primary memories are of the Cy Twombly Retrospective, "Sensations of the Moment." Twombly's mix of paint, drawn scribbles, and scrawled texts are at times child-like, at times allegorical, and always expressive.
