|Portrait of a Woman in Black Tie 1917|
Amedeo Modigliani (1884 to 1920) was an Italian painter and sculptor known for his figures with mask-like faces. He had such a short life and sad ending. I bought this book a couple of years ago and it has many beautiful photos of his sculptures, paintings and drawings. I am very drawn to his use of rich earthy colors and I look at this book often. If these posted images appeal to you, then you will be pleased with this book.
|Self Portrait 1919|
There is a movie based on his life that I have yet to watch. The 2 minute movie trailer can be seen here.
