Antonia

Modigliani was quite skilled at portraiture and painted a variety of people ranging from his friends, lovers and patrons to pretty girls selling vegetables or whoever happens to catch his eyes.

Modigliani was a handsome and charming personality. He attracted much female attention. Many woman came and gone and he painted portraits of many of them. This portrait of Antonia is one such portrait painted by Modigliani.

After 1915, Modigliani devoted himself entirely to painting, producing some of his best works. The artist’s interest in African masks and sculpture is evident in his portraits. The flat and mask-like face, almond eyes, twisted nose, pursed mouth and elongated neck are all characteristics of Modigliani’s portraiture. Despite the extreme economy of composition and neutral back grounds, the portrait conveys a sharp sense of the sitter’s personality.
