TAKING ART BEYOND PERIODS & USING ARTISTS AS WITNESSES OF THEIR TIME
Marc Restellini, born in 1964 in Saint-Omer, in the Pas-de-Calais, is an art historian and French museum director. He is the grandson of the painter Isaac Antcher. He is the founder of the Institut Restellini and is internationally recognized as one of the leading experts on the artist Amedeo Modigliani.
He is keen to see a more innovative reading of Art History based on the cross-disciplinarity of works. His novel approach as an exhibition curator has played a notable part in the modernization of the French cultural scene.
A unique project to produce a Catalogue Raisonné dedicated to Amedeo Modigliani was his brainchild, based on hitherto unused technologies and a new scientific approach.
