Modigliani's exhibition in London's Tate Gallery opened against the backdrop of the scandal after his retrospective at the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa six months ago, closed at the request of the Italian police, who suspected that 21 of the 60 exhibits there were "fakes."


Curators of the London exhibition, however, are sure that they did their best to ensure that none of the 100 paintings and sculptures in its halls cause even a shadow of doubt in the authenticity. "We chose only those works that are included in the catalog recognized by the majority of experts, the 1972 artist's reasoning, compiled by Ambrogio Cheroni," says the exhibition co-curator Nancy Ayreson.


The catalog of Cheroni, one of Modigliani's leading specialists, was first published in 1958 and is still considered the reference one, although there, according to experts, there are gaps. It included only 337 works that Cheroni studied personally. Of the hits in London - 12 nu, who participated in Modigliani's only lifetime exhibition, sparked a scandal and on the first day closed by the police, as well as portraits of relatives and colleagues: Jeanne Ebutern, Brancusi, Juan Gris, Pablo Picasso.
