Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Giorgio Morandi (July 20, 1890 - June 18, 1964) was an Italian painter who specialized in still life. Morandi was born in Bologna, Italy. In 1907 he went to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti. The school, which based its traditions on 14th-century painting, is where he taught himself to etch by studying books on Rembrandt. The works of his formative years show him experimenting with a style related to C zanne and to Cubism, with a brief digression into a Futurist style in 1914. In that same year, Morandi was appointed instructor of drawing for elementary schools in Bologna-a post he held until 1929. Today, there is a museum dedicated to the display of Morandi's work, including a reconstruction of his studio, in Bologna.
