This exhibition aims to reach avast public and is of great relevance as it commemorates the centenary of the decease of the artist.
The core of this exhibition will be a selection of works from the Jonas Netter Collection of Modigliani and other painters active in Paris at thetime (such as Suzanne Valadon, Maurice Utrillo and Chaim Soutine).
