KIRKUS REVIEW

Gnoli, who died in 1970, painted meticulously detailed canvases of everyday objects (paisley bedspreads, striped neckties, buttonholes, armchairs and fat women in flowered upholstery, kitchen tables and printed tablecloths) in a variety of styles emphasizing texture, rhythmic repetition, and geometrical relationships. Magnificent black-and-white reproductions, plus a handful in color. Beautiful and disturbing.
