Caleb De Jong reviews the exhibition Domenico Gnoli: Paintings 1964-1969 at Luxembourg & Dayan, New York, on view through June 30, 2012.

De Jong writes: "Painted with acrylic mixed with sand on medium to largish sized canvases, Gnoli’s paintings are an amalgam of Giorgio Morandi's quietist sensibility and Rene Magritte's standoffish matter-of-fact paint handling… Dry and matte, Gnoli's surfaces resembles the clay masonry of a Roman wall. Details of everyday, bourgeois' life stands in hieratic profile. Two buttons, a bit of curly hair, a couple sleeping underneath their bead covers, an elegantly ironed dress pant are composed with exquisite care."
