Exhibition: Modigliani Unmasked
Venue: The Jewish Museum
Dates: Until February 4th, 2018
The exhibition puts a spotlight on Modigliani’s early drawings. They were made shortly after he arrived to Paris in 1906, when the city was still roiling with anti-Semitism after the long-running tumult of the Dreyfus Affair and the influx of foreign emigres. Modigliani Unmasked exposes the ways Modigliani responded to the social realities that he confronted in the unprecedented artistic melting pot of Paris.
