Modigliani exhibition in Paris

An absorbing collection of works of art, including portraits, nudes, drawings and sculptures are on display at the Pinacotheque gallery in Paris.

The works were owned by French art collector Jonas Netter and also on display are letters between Netter and artists such as Modigliani and Chaim Soutine.

The remarkable exhibition also includes work by Valadon and Kisling. All were artists made famous by Netter.

The exhibition is dominated by Modigliani who died at the early age of 35. The next day his wife, overcome with grief and nine months pregnant, committed suicide by jumping out of a top floor window.

Modigliani was known mainly for his portraits. Here is one of his landscapes. 

The exhibition is on until September 9, 2012. Entrance is 10 euros.

The Pinacotheque is in Place de la Madeleine.
Metro stop: Madeleine.
