Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) moved to Paris as a 22-year-old art student and is regarded as probably the last true bohemian in Montmartre. This exhibition catalogue, which marks the 100th anniversary of Modigliani’s death, shows him for the first time as a leading member of the avant-garde who carried the revolution of Primitivism well into the 20th century. Modigliani’s famous nudes, unusual portraits, and unique sculptures are contrasted with works by Pablo Picasso, Constantin Brâncusi, and André Derain, as well as artifacts from so-called “primitive” cultures. In doing so this volume focuses in particular on Modigliani’s lifelong study of the art of Primitivism, which also interested the artist friends who influenced his work. This catalogue includes over one hundred works, including numerous works by Modigliani from the great museums and most important private collections from America to Asia.
