Kick off the new year with ADSNY when we have an exclusive guided tour at the Jewish Museum’s latest exhibition, which displays approximately 150 rarely seen paintings, sculptures, and drawings by celebrated early twentieth century artist Amedeo Modigliani. Many of these works, assembled for this exhibition from collections around the world, have not been seen before in New York.
This evening tour will highlight how the artist originated important Art Deco aesthetic principles and will also spotlight Modigliani’s drawings in the context of the unprecedented artistic melting pot of Paris before and during the Jazz Age.
This tour will also explore how Modigliani’s art incorporated the various multicultural influences prevalent in the design from the Art Deco movement—African, Greek, Egyptian, etc.—which inspired the young artist during this lesser-known early period.Buy tickets/get more info now
