The Bottle Family continues with another configuration of antique bottles. An Italian artist named Giorgio Morandi (born 1890) painted the same group of bottles over and over throughout his life. All of his paintings were almost the same in appearance. The critics thought that he “achieved an almost metaphysical presence in his work.” Many people collect Morandi now that he is dead. If anybody out there reading this is interested in any of my “Bottle Family” paintings (which began on my blog this January and will continue for 4 more weeks), you can go to my dailypaintworks gallery by clicking here.
