Item description for Amedeo Modigliani: The Melancholy Angel by Marc Restilinni...

A stunning volume accompanies the largest retrospective of this modernist master ever mounted, an exhibit, opening at the Muse du Luxembourg in Paris in October 2002 and running through March 2003, will be a comprehensive survey of Modigliani's career, from his earliest days as a painter in search of a style to his premature death in 1920. The exhibit presents Modigliani's paintings, sculptures, drawings, and never before seen masterpieces, selected from major international museums and private collections.

Modigliani's relatively short working life was enriched by associations with Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Cezanne, and Brancusi. This book offers students of modernism the opportunity to view as a continuity the monumental work of a primary artist of Fauvism and Cubism.

Reviews - What do customers think about Amedeo Modigliani: The Melancholy Angel?

The Best in Beauty  Jul 28, 2007
If you like Italian art and beautiful women, then this is the book for you. Modigliani is without parallel. His art echoes the elegance of Trecento Sienese painting, elegantly garbed in the Paris of its heyday. Should your eye wonder more towards the purely formal in art, a delight in the abstract of form and colour, then Modigliani is also a master to enthral your eye and mind. Hope you enjoy the book as much as I do.
one of the best...  Mar 8, 2006
Modiliagni might be undervalued in the world of artists and painters. He should be honored as well as Picasso, and friends...
In the book with mainly act paintings, sketches and text explains Amadeos way how he had seen women and colors. The book is a must in your library...
Best book out there on Modigliani  Feb 11, 2004
For those who love the sensuous work of this early 20th century master, this text is the best on the market. The pictures span the entire short career (he died at age 36) of this artistic genius. There are stunning images throughout. The colour reproduction is superb, and the paper used is of the highest quality.
There are excellent, exhaustive descriptions of the artist's life, although the descriptions of many of the paintings are short. My only wish is that there were more nudes chosen for the exhibition, because no artist dead or alive painted a nude as beautiful or as provocative as Modigliani. The book is not cheap, but for those who admire this wonderful painter, the price is worth every penny and more.
