The colour of Giorgio Morandi
I'm in love with Giorgio Morandi's still life work. Inspired by artists Cezanne and Rousseau, his still life compositions are beautiful studies in subtle tone, colour and composition. My favourite one is the painting above, Still Life 1955. I'm rather partial to the peach object in the foreground and its perfectly balanced partner, the charcoal jug in the background, oh and the little white object in front - perfect.
