A stunning exhibition with more than 150 works, including 100 paintings, the largest and most extensive presentation of Giorgio Morandi’s work of the last 20 years
Through famous masterpieces assembled from public museums and private collections Giorgio Morandi 1890-1964 (Rome, Complesso del Vittoriano, 28 February– 21 June 2015) explores Giorgio Morandi’s entire body of works. The exhibition is organized by Comunicare Organizzando.
The exhibition is curated by leading Morandi scholar Maria Cristina Bandera, Director of the Fondazione Longhi, who also curated Morandi exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 2008; the MAMbo, Bologna, 2009; the Museo d’Arte della Città, Lugano, 2012; and the Bozar, Bruxelles, 2013.
Giorgio Morandi 1890-1964, 40 years after the major exhibition curated by Cesare Brandi at the Gallleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, is the first Roman exhibition that examines the themes and techniques that preoccupied Morandi during his life.
The exhibition includes around 100 paintings, together with watercolors, drawings, and a large body of engravings. Morandi, who was awarded the first prize for etching at the II Bienal de Sao Paulo, Brasil in 1953, practiced extensively etching, giving attention to this technique as much as to painting.
