BOZAR pays tribute to Giorgio Morandi, one of the great masters of modern art, who was influenced both by Italian painters such as Giotto and Paolo Uccello and French painters such as Chardin, Seurat, and Cézanne. This remarkable retrospective contains a hundred works (oil paintings on canvas, drawings, etchings, and watercolours), brought together by the exhibition’s curator, Maria Cristina Bandera. She invites you to explore the major themes of Morandi’s oeuvre and to immerse yourself in his world as you savour his calming still lifes, the beauty of his landscapes inspired by the countryside of Emilia-Romagna, and the bouquets of flowers he occasionally gave to friends and acquaintances. His work continues to inspire artists today, including Luc Tuymans, who was invited by the curator to present a number of works that enter into a dialogue with those of the Italian painter. A visitor’s guide, with texts by six writers who share their vision on Morandi’s work, will help you to get even more out of your visit.
