One of the most arresting and powerful works of the early 20th century goes on display in an exhibition exploring the relationship between artist and sitter.

Amadeo Modigliani's Female Nude (1916), on loan from the Courtauld Gallery, London, takes centre stage with works from National Museum NI’s collections.

The exhibition is part of a year-long thematic programme, Hear Her Voice, which highlights women in the collections.

Alongside the Modigliani, which revolutionised the perception of women in society, are works including William Orpen’s Resting (1905), Study of Elizabeth Siddall for The Return of Tibullus to Delia (c1851-5) by Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Sleeping Nude (1928) by Mark Gerlter.

The loan is part of an ongoing collaboration to share the Courtauld’s collections with audiences across the UK.
