Dobrzynski writes: "while strongly influence by Morandi, Hollan remains original. Hollan's colors are every bit as subtle, but somehow are also richer. Many of the works are still lifes that overflow the boundaries of the paper, edging into the abstract."
Larry Groff blogs images from a "a rare show in Alba, Italy of Giorgio Morandi's Landscapes where some 70 landscape paintings were shown." In addition to the landscape paintings, Groff also includes an interesting image of Morandi's view finder.
Larry Groff posts a video of Wayne Thiebaud discussing his work and the work of Morandi.
In addition to revealing the direct influence of a Morandi painting on an early painting of sandwiches, Thiebaud discusses a variety of topics including caricature: "If you take something like caricature for instance, which is very much a central aspect of all painting, then caricature represents a way in which, probably, stylistic variants can be determined. If you use caricature in terms of someone like Bonnard - or Morandi - they're caricaturizing their forms, and that makes them unique, gives them a new identity."
