1920s; canvas, oil; 51x57.5; Hermitage.

The creativity of the Italian abstractionist Giorgio Morandi fully reflects his worldview and lifestyle. A graduate of the Bologna Academy of Art, where he subsequently became a teacher. He led a modest reclusive life, his work was admired by a small circle of friends, and only after death did the artist gain world recognition.

Focused more on what is happening inside than outside, Morandi has always painted objects that have nothing to do with political squabbles, everyday reality. He did not seek to express himself through art, he liked to capture the beauty of the world. Therefore, landscapes surrounding the surroundings of his hometown and numerous composite still lifes predominate in his works.

Representing man-made objects, Morandi as if seeks to reflect their true essence, to examine from an unexpected angle, to tell a little more about them. On the canvas, presented in the collection of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, you can see three tall vessels of bizarre shapes, a white plate, fruit and a box of black and white colors.

Still life is made in warm yellowish-pink tones with the addition of gray and blue. It is noteworthy that the objects on the table in two rows, as if melting in the air. Their forms are unclear and vague, the pattern only denotes them on paper, but does not give them weight. They are airy, weightless. Still life Morandi appeals to the feelings and sensations of the viewer, involves in the process of creation, arouses imagination.
