Edited by Marc Restellini and Klaus Albrecht Schröder.

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: 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.
