A Backward Glance: Giorgio Morandi and the Old Masters

Guggenheim Bilbao

12 Apr - 6 Oct 2019

Morandi’s spare still lifes of simple household things flew in the face of modern movements such as Surrealism. This exhibition shows how he looked instead to past masters’ handling of specific objects such as El Greco’s flowers, or Chardin’s boxes. Find out more from the Guggenheim Bilbao’s website.
