Modigliani: Expressionism

Modigliani: Expressionism


Nine paintings by arguably the greatest expressionist painter of all time, Amedeo Modigliani was born in Livorno Italy at the end of the 19th century. His paintings are known for their intense colors, elongated faces and almond eyes. His reclining nudes, thought scandalous at the time are among the most iconic images of odalisques in our modern visual language.

A handsome man who attracted female attention, he worked primarily in Paris where his history of poor health combined with wild lifestyle and overworking, eventually contributed to his death at the young age of 35. Once a sculptor, Modigliani became primarily a painter due to the impact of the first World War's effect on finding materials as well as his compromised health.

Includes a matching gift box and an oversized storycard showing each image with a description and a brief history of the life and times of Amedeo Modigliani. Produced in collaboration with the National Gallery of Art.
