Portrait of Spanish Painter Celso Lagar

Amedeo Modigliani was one of the most unique and innovative Italian artists, who always rendered an idiosyncratic and distinctive painting style. Modigliani adopted the ‘Expressionist’ style of painting, where the depiction of emotion was primary. The artist blended the emotional high with twisted reality for a distinct expression in his portraits.

Modigliani painted a series of portraits of his contemporary artists. The Spanish expressionist painter Celso Lagar arrived in Paris in 1911. There he established a brief but intense friendship with Amedeo Modigliani. This portrait is an outcome of their friendship.

Celso Lagar was known as a painter of circus. He had an authentic way of expressing himself with a series of personal themes easily identifiable among the contemporaries. Lagar was an introvert Bohemian. Hortense Begue, a sculptor was his life companion. After arriving in Paris, he gave up sculpture in favor of painting, though he made a number of sculptures earlier.

The connection between Spanish plastic art and Cubism is evident in the paintings by Celso Lagar.
