See some of the most memorable art of the 20th century at Tate Modern’s comprehensive retrospective of Modigliani’s work

Born in Italy and working in Paris from 1906, Amedeo Modigliani’s career was one of continual evolution. The exhibition begins with the artist’s arrival in Paris, exploring the creative contexts that shaped his life and work. Inspired by the art of Paul Cézanne, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec and Pablo Picasso, Modigliani (1884–1920) began to develop his own distinctive visual language. 

A major highlight of the exhibition is a section devoted to Modigliani’s nudes, perhaps the best-known and most provocative of the artist’s works. In these striking canvases Modigliani invented shocking new compositions that modernised figurative painting. This group will be the largest ever seen in the UK.

Although he died tragically young, Modigliani pushed the boundaries of the art of his time. Including almost 100 works, the exhibition looks afresh at the experimentation that shaped his career and made Modigliani one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century.

Modigliani is sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, virtual reality in partnership with HTC VIVE, supported by Maryam and Edward Eisler, with additional support from the Modigliani Exhibition Supporters Circle, Tate Patrons and Tate Members
