Morandi was one of the most impressive Italian painters of his day. Throughout his career he concentrated almost exclusively on still lifes and landscapes except for a few self portraits. With great sensitivity to tone, color and compositional balance, he would depict the same familiar bottles and vases again and again in paintings notable for their simplicity of execution. Morandi evolved a style of pure pictorial values congenial to modernist abstraction. Through his simple and repetitive motifs and economical use of color, value and surface, Morandi became a prescient and important forerunner of Minimalism.
