    Art Brokerage: Giorgio Morandi Italian Artist: b. 1890-1964. Giorgio Morandi was born and educated in Bologna, Italy. He worked there his entire life, making his first trip to Paris in 1956. Morandi painted still lifes and landscapes, themes he established by 1920. In the late 1920's, he turned to etching and aquatint, a printmaking method of which he was to become a master. He assumed the Chair of the department in Bologna from 1930 through 1956. Morandi made timeless images, classical and poetic in spirit. The surrealist Giorgio De Chirico referred to Morandi as a metaphysical painter of the common object, for, in kitchen still lifes that arranged and rearranged familiar domestic objects such as jugs, vases, bowls and bottles in diverse groupings, Morandi celebrated the details of the ordinary and the humble. By the 1930's, the still life objects became more abstract and less individualized, unified by color and atmosphere. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage. Check out our new sister site at
