These vibrant flowers are a part of Cy Twombly's 'The Roses' exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in London. The five pieces are each paired with pieces from "Les Roses," a poem cycle by German poet Rainer Maria Rilke.

Some consider a beautiful painting to be a poem without words, and it's a beautiful theme for Twombly's exhibition, which runs through early May.

Implications - The gorgeous paintings feature flowers in vibrant colors such as reds, purples and yellows with their petals bursting open as they bloom before your eyes. The paintings are perfectly imperfect with paint drips that bleed down the canvas for a dramatic effect that is both beautiful and full of meaning.
