Giorgio Morandi : Guest artist: Luc Tuymans
BELGIUM
BRUSSELS  •  Palais des Beaux-Arts  •  7 June - 22 September 2013
 

Giorgio Morandi was one of the great masters of modern art, who was influenced both by Italian painters such as Giotto and Paolo Uccello and French painters such as Chardin, Seurat, and Cézanne. Curated by Maria Cristina Bandera, this retrospective exhibition brings together some one hundred works including  paintings on canvas, drawings, etchings, and watercolours).

Morandi's work continues to inspire artists today, including Luc Tuymans, who was invited by the curator to present a number of works that enter into a dialogue with those of the Italian painter.
