Face Time With Modigliani
View Enlarged Photo and CaptionThe Modigliani retrospective that drew hordes to New York's Jewish Museum last summer has made its way to Washington, the final stop on its tour. Lucky us, the retrospective of the Italian-born, Parisian-based painter opens at the Phillips this Saturday. The show is built around his renowned portraits, but also provides glimpses into Modigliani's early forays into sculpture and his drawings. Modigliani certainly had a recognizable style, no doubt, but the show clearly details his evolution as a painter. (See his change to a sun-drenched palette and lighter brushwork after a trip to the Cote d'Azur.) In New York, the lines for this show were literally around the block. Hopefully, we won't have to wait that long for a peek. Preview the show before you go in our photo gallery.
