Special Order—Subject to Availability
This richly illustrated volume places Modigliani at the front of the avant-garde.

Amedeo Modigliani (1884–1920) moved to Paris as a twenty-two-year-old art student and could be regarded as the last true bohemian in Montmartre. Modigliani – Picasso: The Primitivist Revolution marks the one-hundredth anniversary of his death and shows him for the first time not just as a provocateur, constantly under the influence of alcohol and drugs, but as a leading member of the avant-garde who carried the Primitivist movement well into the twentieth century. Here Modigliani’s famous nudes, haunting portraits, and seldom-exhibited sculptures are juxtaposed with works by Pablo Picasso, Constantin Brâncusi, and André Derain as well as artifacts from so-called primitive—i.e. non-European—cultures. The catalog features 160 images of Modigliani’s paintings from museums and private collections across the world.
Marc Restellini is an art historian and French museum director.

Klaus Albrecht Schöder is an Austrian art historian and the director of the Albertina, Vienna.
