Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) was clearly one of the superstars of twentieth-century art. He is the best known and most loved of all modern Italian painters. Working at the epicenter of avant-garde experimentation in Paris between 1906 and 1920, he developed an artistic vision that was entirely his own. This new exhibition is the first to be devoted to the artist at the Estorick Collection and focuses on Modigliani’s works on paper, showing the spiritual and stylistic development of his portrayal of the human face and form. "Modigliani – A Unique Artistic Voice" is on view at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art from April 15 until June 28, 2015.

'What I am seeking is neither the real nor the unreal but the unconscious, the mystery of what is instinctive in the human race'  - Amedeo Modigliani.
