at Winston Churchill Theatre
Modigliani and Bohemian Paris 1906 to 1920
Lecturer Julian Halsby

Modigliani remains one of the most popular artists of the 20th century.

In his lecture, Julian Halsby will discuss his early development and Modigliani's life in Paris from 1906 to his death in 1920. At the centre of Bohemian Paris, Modigliani was a close friend of Maurice Utrillo, Picasso, Max Jacob, Moise Kisling, Chaim Soutine and Cezanne. Influenced by African art and Cubism he developed a highly individual style, particularly of haunting portraits and sensual nudes.

Julian Halsby Studied History of Art at Cambridge. Formerly Senior Lecturer and Head of Department at Croydon College of Art he published numerous books on art topics and interviews artists for the Artist Magazine. A practising artist, he was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists in 1994 and appointed Keeper in 2010.
