This is a reaction to the increasingly hopeless political situation, as "the most desperate freedom" of an Italian artist around 1930. In paintings as late as 1936 Morandi continued this obliteration of the clarity of form. It would not be wrong to call these abstractions, for only the merest sensation of landscape remains as Morandi. He created paintings that are little else than basic architectural structures, purely formal compositions with nothing specifically Italian about them.
