Tête presents three sculptural works and is centred around an exceptional limestone head carved by Amedeo Modigliani in 1911-1912.

After moving to Paris in 1906, Modigliani soon became fascinated with the diverse array of artworks and objects from non-western cultures which he admired at the city’s museums. This exhibition focusses on two of the strongest influences and includes a Cycladic marble head, and a wooden Goru mask which was formerly in the private collection of art dealer Paul Guillaume. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by David Ekserdjian, who co-curated the landmark show Bronze at the Royal Academy of Arts in 2012.
