Modigliani often introduced himself with the salutation “I am Jewish.” Investigating the intersection of psychology, ethnicity, formal analysis, and modernism in the artist’s work, this talk, led by Nelly Silagy Benedek, Senior Director of Education, considers the relationship of Amedeo Modigliani’s art to his Jewish identity.
