Thiebaud + Morandi
Morandi eludes me. Everytime I think I'm starting to understand him he just slips away into that controlled palette that seems to come from a time and place I do not know. I really need a retrospective. In the meantime I ran across this interview Wayne Thiebaud discusses Morandi (pop painting meets subtle tone) made to accompany the exhibition at the Museo d'arte Moderne Bologna. It seems an unlikely relationship but Thiebaud is compelling.
