Giorgio Morandi.


Although it's been less than two years since London's last Morandi show, Tate Modern has decided on another outing for the Bolognese master of the dusty flask and wobbly bottle, the fresco-matte surface, and the bittersweet segments of shadow. Perhaps we're in for a radical reinterpretation. Tired of those supremely painterly qualities that have long endeared him to other artists, we may find our focus shifting to the political and social implications of such work in Fascist and post-Fascist Italy. At the least, Tate curators Donna De Salvo and Matthew Gale are bound to bring fresh insights to their thematic hanging of some forty paintings and twenty works on paper.
