Because it’s good and full of beauty and life – MODIGLIANI at the TATE MODERN… on now and over Christmas and the new year…
It is full of the people that moved this extraordinary Italian painter to work feverishly to reflect on us and the human condition…..Unique in vision and mesmerizing in its patterning – he is the painter you would want to translate you into an image – and maybe project into immortality. Free-thinking and revolutionary, he melds together traditional representation and the quality and colour of individuality – if that doesn’t sound too pretentious. He lived fast and died young, having interacted with many of the great movers and shakers of the creative 20th century. His pregnant girlfriend stepped out of the window to her death two days after he died – yet his legacy is one of haunting beauty….
Take a look – it is worth it.
