Portrait of Anna Zborovska

Modigliani was fortunate of being in the company of good friends and well wishers. The polish poet and art dealer Leopold Zborovska and his wife Anna Zborovska supported Modigliani till the end. Modigliani painted a number of portraits of both of them.

In this portrait, Anna Zborovska is depicted wearing a black coat with large white collar. Her head is tilted slightly and she is looking at an angle.

Modigliani’s interest in African masks and sculpture is evident in the treatment of the sitter’s face – flat and mask like – with almond eyes, twisted nose, pursed mouth and elongated neck. Despite the extreme economy of composition and neutral background, the portrait conveys a sharp sense of the sitter’s personality. Modigliani’s personal idiom was distinguished by strong linear rhythms, simple elongated forms and verticality. The strong influence of Paul Cezanne’s painting is evident in Modigliani’s deliberate distortion of the figure and the free use of large flat areas of color. The works of Toulouse-Lautrec, Georges Rouault and Pablo Picasso also had influenced Modigliani’s portraiture.
