Overview

The work of Italian painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) has never been more popular than it is today. The sensuous nudes and intense, mannered portraits that are his trademark have become favorites of collectors and museum-goers alike.

Modigliani worked on the fringes of the Parisian avant-garde in the 1910s, maintaining an affinity for the artistic traditions of his native Italy as well as for the art of ancient Egypt and African civilizations. Modigliani's impassioned productivity was cut short by his untimely death, but this volume captures the intensity of his drawings, sculptures, and paintings in rich full-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
YAEach of these volumes is arranged into three sections. First, the artist is introduced in the context of his time. The second part is a biographical sketch, accompanied by photographs of the artist. The third section consists of excellently reproduced, full-color photographs of the artist's work, with descriptive text and an overview of his career. Some of the works are not often seen, and are a feast for the eye. The clear grouping of information and the handsome layout, page design, and typography make these books appealing and accessible, even though they have no indexes. The texts are presented in a straightforward manner that is easy to understand. Suitable for research as well as for recreational reading.Turid Teague, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
