Visit to Tate Modern
Modigliani Lecture and Exhibition

Tuesday 20 February 2018

Continuing our popular “lecture and gallery” theme, we have made a booking at Tate Modern for a talk and then group admission to the above exhibition for a self-guided tour.

According to the Tate:

During his brief and turbulent life Modigliani developed a unique and instantly recognisable pictorial style. Though meeting little success during their time, his emotionally 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.”
