Modigliani And His Times
Exhibition: 5th Feb 2008 to 18th May 2008
Modigliani and His Times presents a survey of the work of Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) from the moment of his arrival in Paris in 1906 up to his premature death at the age of 35. Although focusing on a single creator, it includes not only Modigliani's most important worksprimarily paintings, along with sculptures and drawings but also those by artists from his social and professional circles. It has thus been structured into two principal sections devoted to Modigliani's relationships with his masters and with his friends.

Amedeo Modigliani was one of the great figures of 20th-century art; an artist open to the main trends within the Parisian avant-garde prior to World War I, but one who remained independent of any particular school. This exhibition aims to analyse his career from the time of his arrival in Paris in 1906 to his death. In contrast to other exhibitions on the artist organised up to now, the present one will show his work within the context of a dialogue with the great masters who influenced him, particularly Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso and Constantin Brancusi, and with his fellow-artists in Montparnasse, including Marc Chagall, Chaïm Soutine, Moïse Kisling, Ossip Zadkine, Tsuguharu Foujita and Jules Pascin.

Organised by the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Fundación Caja Madrid.

Venue: MUSEO THYSSEN-BORNEMISZA, Palacio de Villahermosa, Paseo del Prado, 8. 28014 MADRID (SPAIN),
