Italian painter Amadeo Modigliani died at the age of 35 in 1906, leaving behind a remarkable collection of hundreds of modern paintings, drawings and sculptures – many of which are now on display at the Tate Modern.

The exhibition takes the viewer through his turbulent life and the various stages of his short but fruitful career, including stop-offs at his breathtaking portraits and sculptures.

But, reader, it is the collection of twelve nudes that will leave the greatest mark upon exiting the exhibition. Consider how forward thinking his display of female sexuality must have been during his lifetime. He manages to portray the female body not as an oject of sexual desire, but as a complex entity unto itself, plus, his inclusion of pubic hair was a big no-no at the time. They are relics of a moment when women’s history was changing, much as it is again today.
