Drawings from The Paul Alexandre Collection


All given by Modigliani to Paul Alexandre. Then by Descent to the Present Owners




This special group of drawings affords a rare opportunity to gain a sense of Modigliani's development between the crucial years of 1908 and 1912.


The poetry and mystery with which he imbues his subjects are already present in the earlier drawings.  And we can see his line and vision become more distilled and lyrical as he finds his mature artistic voice in 'Blue Caryatid' and 'Woman with a Dog'.
