Giorgio Morandi at Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA), through June 25, 2016

“Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964) is one of the best known Italian artists of the 20th century. The exhibition focuses on the artist’s rarely seen works from the 1930s—the decade when Morandi reached full artistic maturity and developed his distinctive pictorial language. These works until now have remained relatively little known or exhibited outside of Italy. Featuring circa 40 paintings, etchings, and drawings by the acclaimed Italian modernist, the installation marks the first time in decades that many of these works have been on view in the US.” — Center for Italian Modern Art
