Program Type:Art Lecture
Amedeo Clemente Modigliani was a Jewish-Italian painter and sculptor in the early 20th century. He is known for his elongated portraits and nudes which were not always received well in his lifetime. His short life, cult-like posthumous following and artistic inventions made his works highly sought out as they generated astronomical auction prices. With two major exhibitions this year in Paris and Philadelphia and another exhibition "Modigliani and Modern Portraiture" at the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn, NY, Modigliani seems to be in the height of fame and notoriety a century after his death. Join Professor Thomas Germano as he discusses the work and life of this celebrity artist.
