This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to experience three masterpieces by Caravaggio, one of the greatest painters of all time, from the Galleria Borghese's renowned collection. The paintings presented provide insight into three crucial stages in Caravaggio's short but intense career.
Michelangelo Merisi, better known as Caravaggio (Italian, 1571–1610), is unquestionably one of the greatest painters of all time. His bold, naturalistic style, which emphasized the common humanity of the protagonists in his works, was both highly admired and controversial among his contemporaries. The Galleria Borghese in Rome is home to the most extraordinary group of Caravaggio’s paintings, spanning his career. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to experience three masterpieces from this renowned collection. The paintings presented provide insight into three crucial stages in Caravaggio's short but intense career.
Featuring works from the Getty Museum's collection by Giovanni Battista Lusieri, and Canaletto, this exhibition captures the essence and spirit of Italy.
Modigliani Unmasked considers the celebrated artist Amedeo Modigliani (Italian, 1884-1920) shortly after he arrived in Paris in 1906, when the city was still roiling with anti-Semitism after the long-running tumult of the Dreyfus Affair and the influx of foreign emigres. Modigliani’s Italian-Sephardic background helped forge a complex cultural identity that rested in part on the ability of Italian Jews historically to assimilate and embrace diversity. The exhibition puts a spotlight on Modigliani’s drawings, and shows that his art cannot be fully understood without acknowledging the ways the artist responded to the social realities that he confronted in the unprecedented artistic melting pot of Paris. The drawings from the Alexandre collection reveal the emerging artist himself, enmeshed in his own particular identity quandary, struggling to discover what portraiture might mean in a modern world of racial complexity.
The exhibition includes approximately 150 works, those from the Alexandre collection as well as a selection of Modigliani’s paintings, sculptures, and other drawings from collections around the world. Modigliani’s art will be complemented by work representative of the various multicultural influences—African, Greek, Egyptian, and Khmer—that inspired the young artist during this lesser-known early period.
Among the works featured are a mysterious, unfinished portrait of Dr. Alexandre, never seen before in the United States; impressions of the theater; life studies and female nudes, among them the Russian poet Anna Akhmatova; and drawings of caryatids and heads, which are telling of Modigliani’s sculptures, which he created over a five-year period from 1909 to 1914.
Modigliani Unmasked is organized by Mason Klein, Curator, The Jewish Museum.The exhibition was designed by Galia Solomonoff and Talene Montgomery of SAS/Solomonoff Architecture Studio.
Modigliani Unmasked is made possible by The Jerome L. Greene Foundation.
