Look him in the face

Amedeo Modigliani is known for his stylized portraits and for his bohemian life. But new exhibitions, including one visiting L.A., dig deeper.

With so many works by Modigliani on view and so much new research in print, other theories are likely to emerge. But for now, Restellini is pleased to have presented a fully fleshed-out portrait of the artist for the public and specialists to consider.

"I think it is important to change the image of Modigliani, and I'm sure my exhibition is helping to do that," he says.

For Wayne, the point was to weave Modigliani into his artistic milieu and to show him at his best: "I wanted to present great works so that people would say, 'Wow, what a great painter. What a great sculptor.' "
