This book, like the exhibition it accompanies, takes as a starting point four important paintings in the collection of the Museo Novecento, which belonged to collector Alberto Della Ragione, including a rare watercolour of a female figure that reveals Morandi's extraordinary artistic abilities. It illustrates paintings, drawings, and prints that have been kept in various private collections. Exit Morandi
also celebrates Morandi's relationship with art critics such as Roberto Longhi, Carlo Ludovico Ragghianti, Cesare Brandi and Francesco Arcangeli.
