Giorgio Morandi

Published by Silvana Editoriale
Text by Maria Cristina Bandera, Marco Franciolli, Simona Tosini Pizzetti, Siri Hustvedt, Lawrence Carroll.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Giorgio Morandi</I>.Giorgio Morandi’s visual lexicon consisted of the most minimal of props--bottles, vases, pitchers, boxes--but from these humble forms he extrapolated a marvelous and decidedly modern metaphysics of objecthood and space. Morandi reinvented the still life for modern times, without ever having directly incorporated modern content into his pictures: “only we can know that a cup is a cup, that a tree is a tree,” he observed, concisely expressing the continued relevance of the still life in the twentieth century. Nothing could be clearer than a Morandi still life, with its mute tones of beige, grays and off-whites, and its glyphic quality of cluster surrounded by spaciousness, and yet few artists have achieved such a singular atmosphere of absolute enigma. In this respect, Morandi is of the school of Vermeer and Chardin, practicing a devotional art of tranquility and privacy--“moods which I have always valued above all else,” as he once told an interviewer--finding whole new worlds in simple permutations of ordinary objects. This handsomely produced volume offers a detailed examination of Morandi’s paintings, watercolors, drawings and etchings. Alongside the still lives, it presents his landscapes, floral compositions and his well-known self-portrait, as well as various works by contemporary artists for whom Morandi has been a crucial precursor.

STAFF REVIEW

I recently began teaching drawing this past semester at NYU, and spend my weekends preparing lesson plans and lectures. I rely on my personal art book collection, not to mention improvisation skills, and on a good day, humor, to pull this off. Whilst preparing for an upcoming lesson plan on still lives, I instinctively thought "Morandi"! I went to my book shelf--surely I had a Morandi book-- I love Morandi! But alas--nothing! OK, no problem: look on my boyfriend's bookshelf. Surely, my artist boyfriend, who worked for years at the Met, who studied art history, has a Morandi book I can consult. But alas--again--nothing! I could not believe that between the two of us, we did not have a Morandi book. But it now makes sense: there is not much in print, by way of a comprehensive catalog, on this master of the still life. Until now! This is the book I will own and consult for any future lesson plans, not to mention for inspiration: Giorgio Morandi from Silvana Editoriale. -- Alexa Forosty
