Head – Painting

Amedeo Modigliani’s work is recognized immediately because of his typical elongated shapes. His paintings show his passion for sculpting, a craft which he had to give up in 1915 due to ill-health. His talent was instantly recognized by the East European avant-garde. Modigliani left his world an oeuvre that shows his search for truth and purity within art.

Modigliani acquired his skill of sculpting during his young age. He visited the marble quarries of Carrere to acquire first hand knowledge in sculpture. He had a passion for the traditional sculptures of Africa and Oceania. He was also exposed to ‘Cubism’ heralded by his friends Picasso and Braque. The “Head-Painting” by Modigliani is an outcome of all these influences. The artist had put together tribal art and African art.

Modigliani’s friend and patron in Paris Dr.Alexandre introduced him to the sculptor Constantin Brancusi, who encouraged him to do sculpting. During his years in Paris, Modigliani created not less than twenty five sculptures including this “Head-Painting.”

Modigliani was able to impart a stylistic unity to his sculptures. Each “Head” can be immediately recognized as carved by Modigliani. In these sculptures, the artist has combined sacredness with spirituality. He developed his own distinctive style.
