Giorgio Morandi: Lines of Poetry

To celebrate its 15th anniversary year, the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art is hosting a career-spanning exhibition of one of its most popular artists: Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964). Focusing on his works on paper, and including around 80 drawings, watercolours and etchings, the exhibition captures the spirit of an artist keen to experiment with a variety of mark-making processes, and with an uncanny ability to capture the essence of a scene and render it with minimal detail, abstracted even, often focusing more on the negative space between objects, and thus forcing viewers to use and combine their skills of perception and imagination.

Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, London, until 7 April 2013.
