Amedeo Modigliani Paintings – 17 Most Famous Amedeo Modigliani Paintings
Amedeo Clemente Modigliani was an Italian painter who primarily worked in France. His paintings are known for their nudes and surreal elongations of the faces. Although he was not widely admired during his lifetime, his works are now highly sought-after.
The subject of his work is usually a woman or a child. Modigliani was known to have drawn from life from an early age and thought that he was already a painter at a young age. His mother was wary of allowing her son to study art, but she eventually gave in to the young Modigliani’s love of painting. This is perhaps why he painted portraits of friends and relatives from the Montmartre district, which would later become some of his most famous works.
When he moved to France, Amedeo Modigliani changed radically. He became anti-establishment and rubbed out many of the paintings he had painted during his earlier career. His studio also became messy and his life was thrown into turmoil. He also stopped attending university and began to isolate himself from society. He became a recluse, and his life became increasingly chaotic.
