Giorgio Morandi

Giorgio Morandi had collections of bottles, jugs and vases that he constantly selected from to make arrangements for his still-life drawings and paintings. He probably never thought of this process as ‘archiving’, but each time he makes a still-life arrangement and records it in a drawing or painting, he is categorising them in his own way.
