An in-depth exploration of how the iconic artist created his works over the course of his full career

Among the most celebrated figures of modern art, Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) has been the subject of many exhibitions and publications, but none until now has examined in depth how the artist created his paintings and sculptures.

Drawing on research using the latest scientific techniques, the authors explore the artist's reuse of materials in his early years; his pivot from artistic trends such as Cubism to engage with a stylized form of figuration; the timeline of his evocative sculptures; and the evolution of his approach from heavily worked canvases to more ethereal paintings. The richly illustrated book also looks at the role of Albert C. Barnes, an early collector of Modigliani's work, in shaping the Italian artist's critical reception in the United States. The Barnes Foundation today owns one of the most important groups of Modigliani works in the world. These, together with some forty other paintings and sculptures from public and private collections worldwide, are interpreted through the lens of new studies carried out by leading international museums.
