About the Exhibition

Organized by a team of curators and conservators—Nancy Ireson and Barbara Buckley from the Barnes, consultant curator Simonetta Fraquelli, and conservator Annette King of Tate, London—Modigliani Up Close explores Amedeo Modigliani’s working methods and materials. Building on research that began in 2017, with a major retrospective at Tate Modern, this focused project takes a close look at how Modigliani created his works. New scholarship by specialists across Europe and the Americas informs a detailed investigation of the artist’s unique style, casting new light on his practice, in an exhibition that brings together important pieces from museum collections.
