Now available in an attractively priced, beautifully produced flexi edition, this important examination of Modigliani’s art focuses on the enigmatic genius of the avant-garde. One of the most recognizable artists of his era, Amedeo Modigliani is also perhaps one of the least understood. In this thorough , yet refreshingly concise volume, Werner Schmalenbach examines Modigliani’s oeuvre, offering a chronological tour of every aspect of Modigliani’s career. The informative commentary is complemented by hundreds of splendid reproductions, many of them full-page color plates. The result is an intimate portrait of a life devoted to art, and an essential reference for any art lover.
