The ‘Silent Perfection’ of Artist Giorgio Morandi

Giorgio Morandi was born in the Italian city of Bologna in 1890 — and rarely ever left. As a young man, he studied at Bologna’s Academy of Fine Arts, an institution where later in life he’d serve as a professor for 26 years. Morandi is best known today for his beautifully contemplative still-life paintings — works which prompted the art historian, Roberto Longhi, to describe him as ‘arguably the greatest Italian painter of the 20th century’.
