Head of a Young Woman


The Italian artist and an exponent of Expressionism, Amedeo Modigliani is best known for his portraits of women. ‘Head of s Young Woman’ one of his famous works in the series of his women portraits. This portrait was painted during Modigliani’s early years in Paris which were prolific.
The flat mask like face and almond shaped eyes in the portrait illustrate the influence of African art in Modigliani’s paintings. Modigliani developed a unique style of painting and his portrait is able to convey the personality of the individual sitter.
The expression of the individual person is hidden behind a mask like countenance. The eyes play an unusually important role in this painting. The silent introversion and depersonalized visage are characteristics of Modigliani’s portraits. Modigliani’s muted palettes are well oriented towards Symbolist models as well as the paintings of Toulose-Lautrec and Edward Munch.
