Giorgio Morandi

Bologna, 1890-1964

Morandi was an Italian painter and engraver. At the beginning of his artistic experience, we can depict a deep meditation on Cézanne’s art; while a little further on, a sharp interpretation of futurism formal aspects, followed by a high reflection of metaphysical painting, start defining his art. The artist’s world revolves around still lifes of bottles, cups and some landscape motifs. Everyone can perceive in his works a profound intimacy and a sense of absolute uniqueness between things and space, achieved through a meditated tone structure. Later on, he moved his interest towards brighter colours and flower paintings.
