006) AMEDEO MODIGLIANI: BOHEMIAN OF MONTMARTRE AND MONTPARNASSE
 

Amedeo Modigliani, painter and sculptor, was born in Italy but spent most of his tragically short life in France among his avant-garde peers: Severini, Brâncuși, Soutine, Gris and Picasso. He is known for portraits and nudes in a contemporary style characterized by the elongation of faces and figures. Come and hear about this quintessentially unconventional artist and see many of his ravishing paintings and expressive sculptures.
