Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) was an Italian painter and sculptor who studied art in Italy before settling in Paris in 1906. In 1908, he exhibited several paintings at the Salon des Indépendants, and in 1912 he followed the advice of Constantin Brancusi and began studying African sculpture. He then exhibited 12 stone heads characterized by simplified and elongated forms that reflected African influence. Modigliani's portraits and nudes are known for their asymmetry of composition, elongation of the figure, and simplification of outline, which reflect the style of his sculpture. By minimizing chiaroscuro, he achieved a sculptural quality through the strength of his contours and the richness of juxtaposed colors. His work also reflects his lifelong admiration for Italian Renaissance masters, as well as the influence of Paul Cézanne and Brancusi. In 1917, Modigliani began painting a series of female nudes, which are among his best works. These paintings feature warm, glowing colors and sensuous, rounded forms. Unfortunately, Modigliani died of tuberculosis at the young age of 35. His legacy lives on as a master of modern art who deftly blended influences from different traditions and created a unique and recognizable style.
