A backward glance: Giorgio Morandi and the Old Masters

Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao
12 April – 6 October 2019

The exhibition explores the role of Old Masters in the painting of Giorgio Morandi, drawing a connection between his still lives and works by some of the artists Morandi studied and appreciated.

Understanding the relations between Morandi’s paintings and the great European pictorial tradition are essential in an artist such as Morandi, whose enigmatic compositions defies any traditional history of art classification.
