Today I finally managed to see the Modigliani Exhibition at Lille Métropole Museum of Modern, Contemporary and Outsider Art (LaM) in Villeneuve-d’Ascq. This time I was wise enough to go by metro and bus, which took less than half an hour. (I did come back on foot though. It’s such a beautiful day today…)
Pascale has already told us about this exhibition, and from her description and the other things I had seen and heard, I knew I would like Modigliani, but I didn’t expect the profound effect his works had on me.
Amedeo Modigliani is a very special painter. He doesn’t paint people’s bodies or faces; he paints their souls.
If you live anywhere near Lille, I do recommend seeing this exhibition before it ends.
I took photos of some of the paintings, which you can see in the photo gallery below.
Perhaps you’d like to have a look and see if you like any of them too?
