The article profiles artist Cy Twombly and his works of art. It says that his mixed-media works on canvas seem to be frustrating to the viewer's compulsion to find the meaning of his paintings. It states that the Cy Twombly Gallery at the campus of Menil Collection in Houston, Texas showcases the paintings of Twombly like the "Untitled (Say Goodbye to Catullus, to the Shores of Asia Minor)" and serves as a sanctuary and inspiration to writers specifically to poets.
