Morandi's Natura Morta at Sotheby's Online


“In my ideal world, the home of everyone who loves art would come equipped with a painting by Giorgio Morandi, as a gymnasium for daily exercise of the eye, mind and soul.”

Peter Schjeldahl

Morandi repeatedly painted many of the same objects over the course of several decades and the groupings begin to take on the feel of family gatherings to those acquainted with his work. Tracing these familiar individuals in his paintings over the years allows us to appreciate the quiet, if tense, poetry created by their shifting relationships and the variety of approaches.
