Focusing on Amedeo Modigliani’s works on paper, this show at The Estorick Collection, London provides a real insight into how the Italian artist developed his famous style of elongated figures and blank, unknowable eyes. You’ll find 30 works on display at The Estorick, which make clear the Egyptian, Greek, Roman, African, Asian and early Renaissance influences on Modigliani’s work.
Modigliani biography and art
Artist Amedeo Modigliani is one of the most popular modern Italian painters, but he worked for the most part in France, where he rubbed shoulders with Pablo Picasso, Constantin Brâncuşi and other avant-garde artists. Never particularly successful during his lifetime, Modigliani died aged just 35 of tubercular meningitis.
