The Jerome L. Greene Foundation is proud to be the lead sponsor of Modigliani Unmasked at The Jewish Museum. The exhibition features an extraordinary collection of drawings acquired by Dr. Paul Alexandre, the artist’s close friend and first patron. These works – many of which are being shown for the first time in the U.S. – illuminate Modigliani’s heritage as an Italian Sephardic Jew and are pivotal to understanding his oeuvre.
In addition to the drawings from the Alexandre collection, a selection of Modigliani’s paintings, sculptures, and other drawings will be complemented by work representative of the various multicultural influences – African, Greek, Egyptian, Khmer, and Christian – that inspired the artist during this lesser-known, early period.
