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