  • Print Description
      Amedeo Modigliani created Christina with oil on canvas in 1916. Modigliani worked almost exclusively with the human form and is famous for his captivating portraits. Christina is portrayed by Modigliani with his characteristic style of geometric elongated shapes which is a dominate feature of this artwork particularly the nose and almond eyes of Christina.  In this art print Modigliani evokes emotions of forlorn and longing with Christina's head slightly tilted and her unassuming gaze and relaxed posture on a sublime green-blue background. A stunning piece of expressionism deserving of a special place in either a contemporary or vintage influenced interior decor.

The Artist

AMEDEO MODIGLIANI

Amedeo Modigliani (1884 - 1920) was a prolific Italian expressionist painter who worked mostly in France.  Modigliani's legacy is a body of work that modernised figurative painting.

Modigliani's famed figurative nudes were often characterised by their elongated bodies and dramatic almond eyes, his subjects are distinctively 'Modigliani', his formal works were unlike any other of his time that it still defies classification - each individualised and telling a different story about his life and art.  Modigliani would sketch furiously, sometimes drawing over 100 sketches a day, focusing on his favored subject the human form.

Modigliani  became the epitome of the tragic artist, creating a posthumous legend almost as well known as that of Vincent van Gogh. Due to a long turbercular meningitis diagnosis and alcohol affliction, which would ultimately end with his untimely death at 35 years old.
