Giorgio Morandi

Portrait of Giorgio Morandi

What if you only painted bottles for your whole life?

“I believe that nothing can be more abstract, more unreal, than what we actually see. We know that... the objective world... never really exists as we see and understand it... has no intrinsic meaning of its own, such as the meanings that we attach to it.” - Giorgio Morandi
