Tate Modern 23 Nov 2017 - 2 Apr 2018
Modigliani showcases some of the most memorable art of the early twentieth century with his iconic elongated portraits.
During his brief and turbulent life Modigliani developed a unique and instantly recognisable pictorial style. Though meeting little success during in their time, his emotionally intense portraits and seductive nudes are now among the best-loved paintings of the 20th century.
Modigliani’s nudes are a highlight of the exhibition – with 12 nudes on display, this is the largest group ever reunited in the UK. These sensuous works proved controversial when they were first shown in 1917, leading police to censor his only ever solo exhibition on the grounds of indecency. You will also discover his lesser-known but radical and thought-provoking sculptures, as well as his portraits of his friends, lovers and supporters, including Pablo Picasso, Constantin Brancusi and his partner Jeanne Hébuterne.
