Modigliani – A Unique Artistic Voice
15 April – 28 June 2015

The best known and most popular of all modern Italian painters, Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) is a true icon of twentieth-century art.

Working at the epicentre of avant-garde experimentation in Paris between 1906 and 1920, he developed an artistic vision that was entirely his own. This exhibition – the first to be devoted to the artist at the Estorick – focuses on Modigliani’s works on paper, showing the spiritual and stylistic influences which led to his unique portrayal of the human face and form.
