Morandi was a painter who lived with his two sisters in a
small house in italy. Every day of his long life he climbed
the stairs to their loft where he painted his extensive 'bottle
and box' collection.
Admitting to a roving-eye for the occasional canvas by de
Chirico, Giorgio however, lived for the play of light on his
beloved biscuit-tins and pitchers, never straying from these
subjects in his own work.
He painted with a single-minded passion, resisting the fashions
that swept the rest of the art world - Cubism, surrealism,
expessionism - they could all go screw themselves as far as
Giorgio was concerned.
hammered out an enormous body of work, then died. Now he's
famous - way to go Giorgio.
