Helsinki’s Ateneum Art Museum will host an extensive retrospective of Amedeo Modigliani’s works starting from 28 October until 5 February, 2017. An installation of almost 200 masterpieces of the famous Italian painter and sculptor will be shown on the Museum’s third floor. This is Modigliani’s largest exhibition ever launched in a Scandinavian country. Modigliani, who died at the age of 35, is considered to be one of the most interesting modern artists. The exhibition, which includes paintings, sculptures and prints, will be an occasion to explore his work and his life in Montparnasse, centre of the Parisian artistic fervour in the early 20th century. A special focus will be given to the works purchased by Roger Dutilleul, art lover and avid collectioner, which are kept in Lille’s Metropole Museum of Modern Art. The exhibition will also include works of Modigliani’s friends, such as Pablo Picasso and Constantin Brancusi.
