GIORGIO MORANDI THE ART OF SILENCE PDF

Out of Print Giorgio Morandi — , an Italian painter and printmaker renowned for his simple yet stunning still lifes, is also famous for his legendary reputation as a recluse, an artist who resided in a world bound by the walls of his Bologna studio. Abramowicz shows how Morandi worked in close proximity to mainstream contemporary European art and tells the story of his relationship to the Fascist politics and patrons of his time, illustrating how his connections to this period were muted after the fall of the regime in post—World War II Italy in an effort to establish the artist as apolitical. Morandi was the only Italian modernist to emerge from Fascism unscathed. An important new addition to scholarship on twentieth-century Italian art history, this book features many rare and previously unpublished images and will fascinate admirers of Morandi and his transcendent work.

In Giorgio Morandi: The Art of Silence, artist and writer Janet Abramowicz attempts to dismantle the ivory tower that Morandi has been placed in by giving a broad and detailed account of his career in the context of 20th century Italian culture and politics. Abramowicz presents a wealth of information, much of which would probably interest only a specialist in the history of Italian art and literature. While the text occasionally offers a revealing personal anecdote, it falls short on psychological and artistic revelations. At other times, sensitivity to development and detail within the work is illuminating, and the wealth of reproductions forms a vibrant counterpoint to the narrative.

Although rendered in an abstract fashion, the viewer is still able to identify an upright book with its binding facing outward, which is positioned in front of a clear bottle, a vase, and a pitcher. In the space behind the table appears an abstracted view of a room, suggesting part of a wall, a window, and another table. While the objects are all inert, they are painted to suggest instability and movement, with a diagonal thrust that propels them towards the viewer. In his early years, Morandi experimented with emerging styles; this painting shows the influences of both Futurism and Cubism.
