Description

At the turn of the 1940s and 1950s, Morandi's attention was increasingly focused on a few issues. In fact, the object becomes a means for the artist, a pretext for exploring the deepest reasons for painting. As can be assessed by observing this still life, in the Morandian research of these years the spatial connotation becomes essential. The laying surface of the objects often coincides with the infinite line of the horizon. This transforms the space into an increasingly indefinite and mental entity. The light, clear and diffused, envelops things in a suspended atmosphere, as if they and the shadows are progressively reduced until they disappear or, regardless of the physical laws, become spots of color of the same consistency as the objects. A further source of estrangement is sometimes determined by the relational value that is established between objects. Morandi subverts, in fact, the normal mechanism of vision, and the objects at the bottom loom over the foreground, going beyond a plausible scan based on near / far coordinates. The depth can only be hinted at by a slender oblique line that marks the laying surface or by the color, in which "the subdued murmuring of grays, whites and ivories" (Marilena Pasquali) can be shattered by the almost timbral assonances of the oranges, pinks and blues. From then on, the concept of series emerges in Morandi's operative procedure, which implies the repetition of the same subject, so that in the repetition the artist's attention is focused on those sensitive differences in tone, light, point of view, of size.
