Join exhibition curator Alice Ensabella for a fascinating online talk about Giorgio Morandi and the Magnani-Rocca Collection. This talk will explore the relationship between artist and collector and how Morandi's work fits within the Magnani-Rocca collection.

Luigi Magnani (1906-1984) was one of Giorgio Morandi’s most prominent patrons and a close personal friend. Having first seen his work in 1939, he was introduced to the artist the following year by the critic Cesare Brandi. The first pieces acquired by Magnani were three etchings given to him by the artist shortly after their first meeting. Over the following 20 years he went on to acquire works spanning Morandi’s entire career.

The talk will take place online via Zoom, an email with instructions on how to join will be sent to you prior to the event.

Advance booking is required.
