Amedeo Modigliani died in 1920 at the age of thirty-five, leaving an extensive sculptural and painterly oeuvre behind despite his premature death. In his art he had devoted himself almost exclusively to the human being. His portraits are as famous as his female nudes, which – although they have belonged to the canon of modern art for a hundred years – today once again raise questions about their image of woman.

The show will present some 50 paintings and works on paper by the Italian artist alongside examples by artists of his Parisian milieu, but also Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Wilhelm Lehmbruck, and others. Astonishing parallels reveal themselves as we rediscover the exceptional character of Modigliani’s art.

The exhibition is under the patronage of the Embassy of the Italian Republic in Germany.

An exhibition of the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart and the Museum Barberini, Potsdam. It can be seen in Potsdam from 4/26/24 to 8/18/24.
