It is curious that in this exhibition none of the subsequent Genoa claimants said anything ...

As final line in catalogue there is the next text:

The information that Vernon Gallery used in the preparation of the Amedeo Modigliani exhibition and the exhibition catalogue pertaining
to the origin and authenticity of the works shown at the exhibition and published in this catalogue was provided to the Gallery by
the parties who loaned works to the exhibition.

Also this in the last page:
Amedeo Modigliani is a master of Modern Art, a consummate example of the ‘contemporary artist’, both through his unique aesthetic sign, and the
revolutionary conceptual message represented in his works.
The central subject through which Modigliani expressed his talent is in fact the human being. Even today, more than a century after his unmistakable
style emerged, Amedeo Modigliani’s art, along with the story of his life dedicated to art, continues to attract the press and the public, which show an
interest in ‘his’ art and in the charming and immortal message it contains.
The concept that distinguishes art from any other human discipline is concentrated and synthesised in the incessant and feverish artwork of Amedeo
Modigliani: ‘to make visible a glimpse of the immortal human being through its aesthetic form’.
The need to communicate this ‘timeless’ message gave birth to the ‘NewCo’ Modigliani Brand Europe.
I am happy that Prague was the first step in a new series of international exhibitions devoted to Amedeo Modigliani promoted by the Modigliani Brand,
which is the company founded to be an instrument for communicating the message contained in the cultural, conceptual and aesthetic heritage of
Amedeo Modigliani.
I attended the opening of this exhibition of Amedeo Modigliani in Prague partly on behalf of the Modigliani Institut Archives Legales Paris-Rome,
representing the President Christian Parisot and Director Luciano Renzi, and I was very honoured that the inauguration was attended by His Excellency
Fabio Pigliapoco, the Italian Ambassador in the Czech Republic, and His Excellency, JE Jaakov Levy, Israel’s Ambassador to the Czech Republic.
Now, a century later, works by Modigliani and Kupka are being shown together again at the marvellous Municipal House and the event has been an
incredible media and public success, achieved through the work of the exhibition’s curator Serena Baccaglini and the organisation of Monika Burian.
This event marked a major new initiative and marked a prestigious start to a series of exhibitions dedicated to the life and work of Amedeo Modigliani
that after Prague will be shown in Taiwan, Korea, China, the USA, Brazil, India and many other countries around the world.
The first event in this series of exhibitions will open in April at the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Art in Taiwan. The exhibition in Kaohsiung will be
enhanced with the addition of some works and in particular more original documents. In fact, some of the more than 6,000 documents from the
Archives Legal Amedeo Modigliani will be translated into Chinese, posted on line, and made available to the public for consultation from the Archives
Amedeo Modigliani for one-billion Chinese speakers, who until now have been excluded from taking advantage of this valuable study material.
The main objective of the Brand Modigliani Europe is to disseminate the cultural and artistic heritage of Amedeo Modigliani by organising exhibitions
and events and to create ‘Casa Modigliani’ in Italy. Modigliani House will be designed as a place where people can encounter the creative and artistic
excellence that can and will be the future of Italy for its cultural and economic interaction with the world.
The Modigliani Brand Europe took up the challenge that the ‘Great Artist’ left us after his untimely death: the possibility of implementing a reading
of the ‘eternal’ in his ‘sign’ so that new projects can be developed and implemented around the world through the dissemination of the ‘artistic legacy’
of Amedeo Modigliani.

The Archives Amedeo Modigliani possesses more than six thousand documents of the artist: letters, postcards, photographs,notes, family diaries,
exhibition catalogues and the personal items of Modigliani and his family. The Archive was created with a passionate work over a period of thirty years
by the Modigliani Institute Archives Légales Paris – Rome and they moved to Rome. Work on organising the Archives began in 1939 with the arrival of
Modiglani’s daughter, Jeanne Modigliani, in Paris. Jeanne was born in 1918 in Nice. Following the death of her parents, she was raised by her paternal
grandmother, Eugénie Garsin in Livorno. After Jeanne Modigliani returned to Paris, friends of her father and art historians started encouraging her
to collect all the documentation she could find on Modiglliani’s life. Over many years of searching, she collected numerous important documents and
issued a pubblication titled “Modigliani without the Myths” which is the first biography on him without any literary invention. In 1983 she founded
the Archives Légales Amedeo Modigliani, Cultural Association, registered with the Préfecture de Police de Paris and Christian Parisot was appointed
as the Association’s official representative. The Association’s aim is, in accordance with the founder’s wishes, to organise and protect the artist’s work.
The association has been operating for twenty-five years and remains faithful to its initial commitment to protect and support the international
reputation of Modigliani’s works and the historical and aesthetic information relating to them. Christian Parisot maintains the Archive that was
entrusted to him by Jeanne Modigliani and continues the work that she herself started more than seventy years ago.
