Portrait of Monsieur Deleu
Modigliani’s portraits were not similar to the traditional portraits
of the pre-modern art. His subjects were more of the real people.
Portrait by Modigliani convey a story of character of the sitter. They
were not about capturing the exact likeness of the subject.
In this portrait of Monsieur Deleu, the artist has succeeded in capturing
the smirk and disapproval in the face of his subject.
Modigliani modernized the art of portraiture. Photography had freed artists
of the need to be realistic or naturalistic, thereby allowing them to
take artistic liberties. Modigliani elongated his sitter creating an elegant
and surrealistic image. The portrait by Modigliani is very soulful. As
Jean Cocteau once wrote, Modigliani turned his subjects into Modiglianis.
