Morandi Colours

¡Favorite artist!
The quiet enjoyment of a Morandi... its a mysterious thing. 
His colours are truly beautiful! The main discussions on his work seem to be only about his epic dedication to composition, however. Of all the oft-used elements in his pictures, so carefully balanced according to the intricate compositional systems he invented, it is his signature which startles me most! Often it is large - I wonder if he factored it in to the 'balance'? Surely he did?
Maybe what Morandi was really arranging was a relationship between two types of happiness- the rustic and the refined, the humble and the transcendent. 
I find this kind of balancing very pleasing- and it is a thread that runs through many of the objects and ideas I present here.
