Note: Twombly studied from 1948 to 1951 at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, VA, at the Museum School in Boston, and at the Art Students League in New York, where he met Robert Rauschenberg, who suggested that Twombly attend Black Mountain College, 1951-1952. In 1957 he relocated to Italy, where he would remain for the rest of his life, making Rome his primary residence. He is most well known for his large paintings populated with scribbled marks, calligraphic or graffiti-like words, letters, numbers, and references to Classical culture. He also produced prints, sculpture, and photographic works.
