MEMBERS ONLY: MODIGLIANI UNMASKED: PRIVATE EVENING TOUR AT THE JEWISH MUSEUM
30 October 2017 / 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us on Monday, October 30, for a private evening visit to the recently opened Modigliani Unmasked, the first exhibition in the United States to focus on Amedeo Modigliani’s early work made in the years after he arrived in Paris in 1906. The exhibition puts a spotlight on Modigliani’s drawings, with a large selection acquired directly from the artist by Dr. Paul Alexandre, his close friend and first patron. These works — many of which are being shown for the first time in the U.S. —illuminate how Modigliani’s heritage as an Italian Sephardic Jew is pivotal to understanding his artistic output. The exhibition includes approximately 150 works, those from the Alexandre collection as well as a selection of Modigliani’s paintings, sculptures, and other drawings from collections around the world. Modigliani’s art is complemented by work representative of the various multicultural influences — African, Greek, Egyptian, and Asian — that inspired the young artist during this lesser-known, early period.
