Modigliani. The name summons up his paintings – portrait and nudes – with a definite intensity and seduction. This exhibition, which has just opened at the Tate Modern, offers portraits of his muses and close friends, his nudes obviously, but also his lesser-known, radical and thought-provoking sculpture. It also includes a virtual visit to his Paris studio (for which tickets are separate but free).After my introduction to Modigliani himself and to his work, we will visit the exhibition together. We will deconstruct his remarkable style, examine what might explain the extraordinary prices his work commands ($170.4 million in 2015 for his Nu Couché!), and talk about his legacy.
