Nini's Painting by Cy Twombly. In Nini Pirandello, the wife of Twombly's Roman gallerist Plinio De Martiist, died suddenly. In tribute, Twombly painted the elegiac "Nini's Paintings".

'In 1971, Nini Pirandello, wife of Twombly’s Roman gallerist Plinio De Martiis, died suddenly. 'Nini’s Paintings' were painted in tribute to her. In his 1915 text, ‘Mourning & Melancholia’, Sigmund Freud describes the act of mourning as a process that unfolds ‘bit by bit’; an obsessive and repetitive listing in an attempt to sever the bond between deceased & bereaved. This can only be done once the mourner has rerun memories of the lost loved one.'
