Amedeo Modigliani fra disegno e pittura

Femme au col blanc and other portraits from the Musée de Grenoble

The exhibition, thanks to the collaboration with the Musée de Grenoble, of six works by Modigliani, between painting and drawing, allows you to analyze the relationship between graphics and painting and to grasp the main cultural references in his work as a portraitist.

The masterpieces of French and Italian art of the period in which Modigliani lived and worked, belonging to the collections of the Magnani-Rocca Foundation (in the French context, in addition to Cézanne, also Renoir, Monet, Matisse, and Braque; in the Italian context, Severini and Morandi ), offer the public a broad view of the art scene of the time.

The exhibition shows the painting Femme au col blanc, oil on canvas from 1917, depicting Lunia Czechowska, wife of the childhood friend Léopold Zborowski, art dealer and patron of Modigliani, and five pencil portraits of characters living in Paris in 1910, where Modigliani was at the centre of the art scene, during the international avant-garde period.

With the visit to the exhibition and collection is possible to visit the beautiful parc of the villa.
