About the Artist
Prolific painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) died as an unknown artist. He had a passionate admiration for African masks and sculpture and this influence is clearly notable in his artworks – almond eyes and twisted features that are flat masklike, and elongated forms. On the other hand, Modigliani “curved lines, planes, and spare composition influences come from Cezanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Picasso. Modigliani’s paintings are adorated representations of feminine sexuality. Struggling with poverty, drinking and drug use, Modigliani died of tuberculosis at age 35.
