I love this collage program I found-PhotoVisi. I was playing around and collaged some of my favorite artists.

Painting by Cy Twombly
I have always loved the work of American Artist-Cy Twombly. He is most well-known for his large-scale scribble, calligraphic works that are somewhere between a painting and a drawing. I also found out he shares the same birthday as I do! His son, Alessandro is also an artist. He is most well-known for his brighter works, primarily flowers. Alessandro is married to Argentinian designer, Soledad and they live with their family outside of Rome in a gorgeous, boho-chic farmhouse. Soledad is a designer and her name pops up frequently on many best dressed lists. Her atelier in Rome is to die for!

Soledad's Atelier in Rome
Cy lived in Rome during the sixties, and Alessandro’s mother still lives there. Below is a picture from Vogue 1966 of Cy’s Roman Palazzo. It is so beautiful and I love the juxtaposition of the abstract art and the classical furnishings. It is almost shocking that this picture is from the Sixties. It looks like it could have been ripped out of a current Elle Decor. Simply beautiful!
Like the Missonis (posted here) I love the creativeness that runs through the family lineage. It is so inspiring.
