Bride and Groom

While in Paris, Modigliani was influenced by the Fauves and Cubists as well as by the sculpture Constantin Brancusi.

In this painting “Bride and Groom”, the influence of African art is apparent. Extremely elongated figures are common in the art works of Modigliani. The painting illustrates his use of simplified form and graceful lines.

This is one of Modigliani’s earlier, satiric and witty paintings. In this Lipchitz wedding portrait, the rigidly standing man in formal dress – top hat, tiny bow tie, stiff collar and starched shirt front is much older and taller than his consort. His ruddy face bisected by a vertical line reflects the disparate planes of cubism. He has a flat triangular nose and an elegantly twisted mustache above a glimpse of rosy lips. The woman faces slightly to the right, her pale forehead visible between dark bangs. She has asymmetrical eyes, tiny pursed mouth and large round dangling earrings. The artist seems to have captured this unknown newly married couple in a café after the opera than in a church or town hall. The bride and groom are seen stiffly remote from each other.
