While browsing the ARTnews website earlier today I came across a wonderful article titled “Object Lessons”. It contains excerpts of a conversation between Wayne Thiebaud and Alessia Masi, the curator of his recent exhibition at the Museo Morandi in Bologna, Italy. Thiebaud talks about light and color of Morandi’s paintings, their intimacy and joy of long looking. He also makes so many references to other outstanding painters.

I can’t wait to go to the opening of the Giorgio Morandi exhibition next month at the Museo d’Arte Lugano. The exhibition will gather together full spectrum of his works: oil paintings, drawings, watercolors, and etchings alongside works by those whom he influenced.
