Included here are five of the ten iconic "yellow cloth" paintings from 1952, a series featured prominently in the historic 1998 exhibition at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, and numerous late paintings by the Italian master. Lavishly reproduced, these immersive plates draw attention to the idiosyncratic perspectival and color-driven decisions that give the work its abstract power. The catalogue is published on the occasion of the 2015 exhibition of Morandi's paintings from this period at David Zwirner, New York—which, according to The New York Times, represent "lucid perfection, at once cerebral and impassioned." It marked the first major presentation of the artist's late work in America since the acclaimed 2008 retrospective at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
