Rarely do we visit an exhibition more than twice, but this November jewel at the Met called us back three times! Congratulations to our friend Renato Miracco, director of the Italian Cultural Institute of New York, for his recent curatorial triumph, "Giorgio Morandi 1890-1964" highlighting this 20th-century master of landscape and still life paintings. The contemplative, quiet, rich exhibition attracted huge crowds, surely as large as the Van Gogh at the MoMA. Morandi is an intriguing artist (echos of Chardin) who spent a solitary mid-century life meditating shape and form. Sr. Miracco, with friends and scholars of Morandi, breathed new life into this "artist's artist."
