Morandiís Legacy: Influences on British Art
ENGLAND
LONDON  •  Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art  •  Ongoing
 
 

This exhibition explores the influence of the Italian artist Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964) on British artists by juxtaposing a number of his paintings, drawings and etchings with works by such well-known and diverse figures as Patrick Caulfield, Paul Coldwell, Tony Cragg, Michael Craig-Martin, David Hockney, Christopher Le Brun, Ben Nicholson, William Scott, Euan Uglow, Rachel Whiteread, Victor Willing and Paul Winstanley.

Giorgio Morandi is best known for his contemplative still life paintings of familiar objects such as vases, bottles, jugs and boxes, painted in subtle combinations of colour using a narrow range of tones. Morandi lived in Bologna all his life and mainly worked in a tiny room containing a bed, writing desk, drawing table and bookcase. He never visited Britain.
