Summary "In the history of 20th-century figurative art, the Italian painter Giorgio Morandi stands out as a highly individual artist who captured the simple beauty of light on forms through deft brushwork and the use of subtle coloration. This richly illustrated volume brings together 109 of Morandi's most important works, executed in a variety of techniques."--BOOK JACKET
