tete de Cariatide by Amedeo Modigliano,

Modigliani Unmasked  considers the celebrated artist, Amedeo Modigliani (Italian, 1884-1920), shortly after he arrived in Paris in 1906, the same tim when Picasso “discovered Africa”, the best exsample “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” 1907.

“Modigliani Unmasked” is arranged thematically, and includes approximately 130 drawings, 12 paintings, and seven sculptures by the artist. Modigliani’s art is complemented by work representative of the various multicultural influences – African, Asian, Greek, Egyptian, and Khmer – that inspired the young artist during this lesser-known, early period.” Source Mason Klein, Modigliani Unmmasked, Yale University Ptess, The Jewish Museum, New York 2017.
