Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) produced some of the most memorable art of the early twentieth century and this will be the most comprehensive UK survey of his work. Born in Livorno, Italy and working in Paris from 1906, his career was tragically short but experimentation was a consistent priority. Connecting biography with practice, and including works in different media, the exhibition places Modigliani’s work in dialogue with pieces by his contemporaries including Brancusi and Picasso. His sculpture, portraiture, nudes and paintings of young peasants reveal a body of work that borrowed from – and contributed to – the visual culture of his time.
