Paris in the early 20th century was the place for a young avant garde artist to make their name. It was the city where Amedeo Modigliani (1884–1920) produced some of the most memorable art of the early twentieth century. before his career was cut tragically short. His portraits of friends, including that of Chaim Soutine (1893-1943), testify to a life rich in experimentation.
This autumn finds both Modigliani and Soutine on show in London with Tate Modern's retrospective Modigliani (23 November 2017 – 2 April 2018) and the Courtauld Gallery's Soutine’s Portraits: Waiters, Cooks and Bellhops (19 October 2017 – 21 January 2018).
