The Faces of Amedeo Modigliani

Tête By Modigliani

Tête By Modigliani

Amedeo Modigliani was an Italian painter and sculptor. Modigliani led a short life with great artistic output. He considered himself a sculptor foremost and painter secondary.

However, towards the end of his life Modigliani painted exclusively. His move away from painting was fueled by failing health and decreasing supplies from the outbreak of World War I.

Posthumously, Modigliani’s sculpture  Tête, is the fifth highest grossing sculpture of all time. Modigliani was highly motivated and produced many pieces. Most of which he destroyed himself, considering the work inferior.

His infamous portraits and nudes are characterized by long faces and elongated necks. Modigliani’s subjects were mostly women. Of the few male portraits Modigliani painted, one was of the famous painter Pablo Picasso. Other subjects painted and sculpted by Modigliani include his lovers and friends.

Modigliani’s nude artwork was highly controversial at the time. In Paris, his only solo art showing, was temporarily shut down upon opening. He was forced to remove the nude artwork from the gallery’s street front window to reopen the gallery.

Modigliani’s fascination with the classical African and Etruscan artwork, passion for sculpture and distinct style transcend into his artwork. All of these factors make it difficult to pinpoint Modigliani into one genre among his peers.
