The Real Amedeo Modigliani

This spring, French curator Marc Restellini plans to release his definitive, long-awaited index of surviving works by Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani (1884–1920). Though respected critic Ambrogio Ceroni already published a similarly major Modigliani catalog, in 1972, Restellini has added about a hundred works to the 337 that Ceroni recorded, as well as de-authenticated a handful.
