Giorgio Morandi was an Italian painter and printmaker best known for his still lifes of bottles, jars, and boxes. In 1918, he was associated with the Metaphysical art movement, founded by Italian artists Giorgio de Chirico and Carlo Carrà. In this style, Morandi intended to depict everyday objects with a dreamlike composition. The upcoming Prints & Multiples sale, presented by Finarte, showcases an etching by Morandi. It shows two objects placed on a cloth-covered table.
The sale also offers a painting, titled Atlantic, by Italian Transavantgarde sculptor, painter, and muralist Mimmo Paladino. The artist played a major role in the development of the Transavantgarde movement, which elevated the concept of figuration. Executed in 1987, the offered lot was created with the linocut printmaking technique. The auction of 180 lots also includes Bruno Munari’s painted wood piece titled Composition and a 1977 sculpture by François Morellet. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
