it was amazing
bookshelves: 2010, art-and-artists, non-fiction, photography, italy

so don't read the cloying essay about Morandi's genius, just look at the damn pictures. My five stars are contingent on loving Morandi's work. Let's say this is like someone publishing a photo album of Van Gogh's photo album, with his travel snaps of a local cafe, some landscapes, the local area with its yellow houses and iris fields. It's like seeing behind the curtain; this book makes it possible to consider the process that happens between the things themselves in a space, being looked at and moved around, and the painting being made. I'm not sure I can describe it really. But if you know his paintings well, these are all those familiar shapes in black and white photos that tell you everything about how Morandi worked.
