Early C20th - Sculpture
Amedeo Modigliani - Tête
Tue-Fri: 11-6pm; Sat: 11-3pm
Tête will present three sculptural works and is centred around an exceptional limestone head carved by Amedeo Modigliani in 1911-1912.
After moving to Paris in 1906, Modigliani soon became fascinated with the diverse array of artworks and objects from non-western cultures which he admired at the city’s museums. This exhibition focusses on two of the strongest influences and includes a Cycladic marble head, and a wooden Goru mask which was formerly in the private collection of art dealer Paul Guillaume.
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by Professor David Ekserdjian.
