Morandi 1890-1964 is an exhibition curated by Maria Cristina Bandera. Because of the quantity and quality of works on display, it is one of the most important and comprehensive retrospective exhibitions on the Bologna-born painter held in the last few decades. It perfectly falls in line with the deep appreciation for Morandi’s work in prestigious international venues, from the Metropolitan Museum in New York (2008), to the Pushkin in Moscow (2017), and the Guggenheim in Bilbao (2019).

More than thirty years since the last exhibition, Milan dedicates this major exhibition to Giorgio Morandi, to celebrate the elective relationship between the city and the Bologna-born painter.

Indeed, Morandi’s first major collectors – i.e. Vitali, Feroldi, Scheiwiller, Valdameri, De Angeli, Jesi, Jucker, Boschi Di Stefano, and Vismara, who have donated parts of their collections to the city – were from Lombardy or lived in Milan. Further, Galleria del Milione, with which the painter had a privileged relationship, was also based in Milan.

An exhibition corpus of about 120 works traces the entire oeuvre of the Bologna-born artist – fifty years of activity, from 1913 to 1963 – by means of outstanding loans from leading public institutions and prestigious private collections.

The exhibition follows a chronological order with targeted and unprecedented comparisons with other artists, documenting Morandi’s stylistic evolution and modus operandi. It features 34 sections narrating the various phases in the Maestro’s art.
