Amadeo Modigliani died tragically young at 34, but during his short life he invented shocking new compositions which modernised figurative painting. In this lecture (which is designed to complement the exhibition of his work, which opens at Tate Modern in November 2017), National Gallery art historian Gayna Pelham will look at Modigliani's extraordinarily provocative work and how he pushed the boundaries of modern art forever.
