Amedeo Modigliani and Bohemian Paris 1906 - 1920
Speaker: Julian Halsby
Venue: Cultural Centre and your home (see below)
Date: 18th October at 18:00 (Spanish time)
Sponsor: Blevins Franks   

Modigliani remains of the most popular artists of the 20th century. I discuss his short life in some detail looking at his early development and his arrival and life in Paris from 1906 to his death in 1920. Modigliani was at the centre of Bohemian Paris and was a close friend of Maurice Utrillo, Picasso, Max Jacob, Moise Kisling, Chaïm Soutine and many other painters and writers who made up Bohemian Paris. I discuss the influences on his painting and sculpture including Cézanne, African art and Cubism and show how he developed a highly individual style of his own. I look at his haunting portraits and sensual nudes while exploring the Bohemian life of Montmartre.
