GIORGIO MORANDI


Giorgio Morandi (June 20, 1890 June 18, 1964) was an Italian painter who specialized in still life.

Morandi was born in Bologna. In 1907 he went to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti. The works of his formative years show him experimenting with an idiom related to Cézanne and to Cubism, with a brief digression into a Futurist style in 1914. In that same year, Morandi was appointed instructor of drawing for elementary schools in Bologna — a post he held until 1929. Today, there is a museum dedicated to the display of Morandi's work, including a reconstruction of his studio, in Bologna.
