Morandi Paintings and Manzu Sculptures
March 8, 1960 - March 20, 1960
An exhibition of sculpture and painting by two of Italy’s foremost contemporary artists–Giorgio Morandi and Giacomo Manzu. Seventeen paintings or etchings by Morandi are presented, as well as eight sculptures in bronze by Manzu. According to Professor James M. Carpenter, chairman of the Colby Department of Fine Arts, “These men are unusual in that they are neither abstract or expressionistic, but deal directly with reality and bring to it a serene poetic quality.” The pair are credited with leading a revival of artistic activity in modern Italy. The exhibition, which is provided through the courtesy of the World House Galleries, will continue on to a showing in New York after its tenure at Colby.
