Book of the Week
This weeks Book of the Week is Morandi’s Objects by Joel Meyerowitz
In the spring of 2015, the photographer Joel Meyerowitz sat at the work table in Giorgio Morandi’s Bologna home, in the exact spot where the painter sat for over 40 years making his quiet, sublime still lifes.
Here Meyerowitz looked at, touched, studied and connected with the more than 250 objects that Morandi painted.
Using only the warm natural light in the room, he photographed Morandi’s objects: vases, shells, pigment-filled bottles, silk flowers, tins, cans, funnels, watering cans.
In the photographs, each object sits on Morandi’s table, which still bears the marks the painter drew to set the positions of his subjects. In the background is the same paper that Morandi left on the wall, now brittle and yellow with age.
Meyerowitz’s portraits of these dusty, aged objects are not only works of art themselves, but they offer insight into the humble subjects that Morandi transformed into his subtle and luminous paintings.
