Grab this opportunity to join Nick for a retrospective look at Modigliani.
Saturday 7 November
Italian artist, Amedeo Modigliani had a brief and turbulent life. Jean Cocteau called him the last Bohemian. He developed a unique and instantly recognizable style, but had little success during his lifetime. Now his portraits and nudes are some of the best-loved paintings of the 20th century.
If you missed Tate Modern’s exhibition of Modigliani’s work in 2018, this is your opportunity to see it.
Join Nick’s retrospective look at Modigliani via Zoom. If you have never used Zoom before, Nick will show you how to download the program and get started.
When you have booked your place, Nick sends you a handout with high resolution images. You can refer to this handout during the lecture and see the images clearly. He projects the images on his studio wall and uses them to point things out as he speaks. After the tour Nick sends you his lecture notes.
The price for the two-hour virtual tour and notes is £20 per person. If two of you join the tour and share a computer screen, the price is £30 for you both. You can pay Nick via bank transfer or cheque. He will send you the details.
