Famous Art work & Drawing by Amedo Modigalini -Lalotte. Lalotte. 1916. Oil on canvas. 55 x 35.5 cm. Musée National d'Art Moderne Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France


‘Lalotte’ is one among the well known portraits by Modigliani.

Handsome and impetuously charming Modigliani took up residence in the Montparnasse section of Paris around 1909. At that time, Montparnasse was the home of major art stars – to be, like Pablo Picasso and Diego Rivera both of whom were friends of Modigliani and inspired him to paint portraits. Modigliani was famed for his elongated richly colored female nude studies, but also he was quite skilled at portraiture and painted a variety of people ranging from his friends, lovers, patrons to pretty girls selling vegetables or whoever happened to catch his eyes.

The swan-necked woman portrait by Modigliani is easily identifiable. Most of them were lovers while, some were paid models. All of them are placed on a painterly plinth and gazed at adoringly.

It is usual to take out all of Modigliani’s swan-necked women portraits together and to imagine they are essentially the same woman. But the striking fact here is that they are all different. The brush wok in this portrait is restless and insouciant and brave. He was a unique colorist and used highly inventive palette.

The more carefully one examines the portrait by Modigliani, the more exciting he becomes.
