Requiescat in pace: painter Cy Twombly, 1928 - 2011

If readers allow the passing of painter Cy Twombly to be a door to enjoyment of his paintings the route might lead to Houston.

In the serene environs of the Menil Collection, tucked away in the Montrose neighborhood, there is an entire gallery devoted to Twombly's work. Having parked once, visitors can experience the Rothko Chapel, Cy Twombly Gallery, Menil Bookstore and Byzantine Fresco Chapel Museum. Plus the Menil's Museum Building, in which you will find work by Matisse, Picasso, Miro and Magritte.

Highly recommended.
