"Morandi's art, which finds expression through variations of a few dominant motifs, is an art of allusion, not of deceit. This way Morandi builds up a complete emotional world that offers something for lovers of intellectual speculation. He combines extraordinary grace with a lucid and strict reason.." Lamberto Vitali, in: Giorgio Morandi. Natures Mortes. Exhibition Galerie Schreiner SA, June-July 1977, no. p. (p. 30).
