In endless odes to the female form, Amedeo Modigliani (1884�’1920) traced elongated bodies, almond eyes, and his own name into art history. His languid female subjects are as instantly recognizable as they are startling, sensual, and swan necked.Modigliani’s unique figuration corresponded to his own personal idea of beauty, but drew upon a rich variety of visual influences, including contemporary Cubism, African carvings, Cambodian sculptures, and 13th century painting from his native Italy. Although most renowned for his nude females, he applied similar stylistic techniques to portraits of male artistic contemporaries such as Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, andChaa�m Soutine.With key works from his highly individualistic repertoire, this book introduces Modigliani’s brief but revered career at the heart of Paris’s early modernist hotbed.
