Renee the Blonde

The portrait of ‘Renee’ – a hunky gorgeous blonde – was painted by Modigliani in the period of Ecole de Paris, using the technique of oil on canvas.

It is Modigliani’s such portraits of women with which his art reached the highest perfection. His female sitters, with their softer contours, enabled him to strive for an idealized plasticity of form. He was able to elongate their body and face to create exquisite new combinations of curves and lines. In short, the female body inspired him.

Modigliani is famous for his stylized portraits. The elongated neck and sloe eyes are formulaic of his portraits. His works are instantly recognizable by his skewed style leading others to see him as simplistic and not very experimental.

Portraiture was one of his favourite art. Although he witnessed the beginning of cubism and the rise of surrealism, Modigliani remained indifferent to the theories of his days and did not claim to belong to any artistic movement. His paintings touch on fauvism, expressionism and cubism. His works, with all these influences, remain stylistically unclassifiable, although they are coherent as a whole.
