Palazzo Blu – Pisa, ITALY
Amedeo Modigliani: Et Ses Amis, an exhibition at the Palazzo Blu in Pisa, is a rich selection of works from the Centre Pompidou in Paris presented with magnificent works from major public and private collections, both Italian and foreign. The exhibition recreates the cultural atmosphere in which the life and artistic formation of Modigliani developed from his time in Livorno (Tuscany) until he moved to Paris in 1906 in search for a new experience in painting.
In Paris, the center of avant-garde culture, Modigliani was influenced by the Fauves and artist friends such as Marc Chagall, Max Jacob, Georges Braque, Jean Cocteau as well as by Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec and Cézanne. Along with the works by Modigliani, great masterpieces of the artists of the time are on display including his contemporaries in Montparnasse such as Chaim Soutine, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Fernand Léger and many popular figures including Maurice Utrillo, Suzanne Valadon, André Derain and Raoul Dufy, Gino Severini and Juan Gris. Rounding out the exhibition are a significant selection of sculptures by Modigliani and the great sculptors of the period such as Constantin Brancusi with an exceptional series of photographs taken by Brancusi.
