The Museum Barberini in Potsdam opened a new exhibition at the end of last month dedicated to the subject of Modigliani: Modern Gazes.

According to the blurb on the museum's website:

Almond-shaped, sightless eyes are an unmistakable feature of Modigliani’s style. With their stoic noblesse, his portraits and nudes have become icons of modern art. Like Frida Kahlo and Pablo Picasso, Amedeo Modigliani provoked both hostility and admiration, and his early death encouraged the creation of legends. Only a few of his pieces are found in German collections. The show Modigliani: Modern Gazes, the first exhibition of his work in Germany in fifteen years, offers a revised image of Modigliani, presenting him as an artist who turned his gaze to emancipated women.

The show will run until 18th August 2024.
