AMADEO MODIGLIANI (1884-1920)
Modigliani is one of the best known - and most misunderstood - artists of the twentieth century. This handsome book, the catalogue to an exhibition at the Royal Academy, seeks to explore the myth that surrounds the artist. Drawing on new scholarship, it re-addresses the position Modigliani holds within the history of early twentieth century art. Modigliani invented a unique and instantly recognisable visual language that is both seductive and highly disciplined. Focusing on the erotic nudes, portraits and figures this extensively illustrated book will contribute to the critical re-evaluation of this remarkable artist.
