Modigliani : Modern Gazes Hardback

Edited by Christiane Lange



Among the most celebrated works of Modigliani’s brief butbrilliant career are his large-format nudes.

Drenched in colorand glowing with the artist’s deep appreciation of women andthe female form, these works ushered in a new era of nudeportraiture, while also causing an enormous scandal.

Thisstunning exhibition catalog offers a new perspective on thisaspect of Modigliani’s work by examining for the first time hisportraits of emancipated women sporting coupe garçonneshaircuts and wearing loin cloths.

Modigliani was one of thefirst chroniclers of the femme moderne, which also influencedhis nude painting and the scandal they caused.

Featuringlavish reproductions and astute texts by leading scholars, thisvolume also examines Modigliani’s cultural context in EuropeanClassicism, from Toulouse-Lautrec and Cezanne to the work ofhis contemporaries, including Paula Modersohn-Becker, GustavKlimt, Egon Schiele, Jeanne Mammen and Wilhelm Lehmbruck;and traces his impact on future European Modernism and NewObjectivity.
