During his brief and turbulent life Modigliani developed a unique and instantly recognisable pictorial style. Though meeting little success during his lifetime, his intense portraits and seductive nudes are now among the best-loved paintings of the 20th century. Modigliani’s nudes are a highlight of the exhibition – with 12 nudes on display, this is the largest group ever reunited in the UK. These sensuous works proved controversial when they were first shown in 1917, leading police to censor his only ever solo exhibition on the grounds of indecency. You can also discover his lesser-known but radical sculptures, as well as his portraits of his friends, lovers and supporters, including Pablo Picasso, and Constantin Brancusi.
