  • Print Description
      Amedeo Modigliani’s female nudes are among the most arresting and powerful works of the early 20th century.  Female Nude was created by Modigliani in 1916 and is to this day is his finest and most celebrated nude portrait.  The model in this painting was his lover at the time Beatrice Hastings who appears to be asleep, and although based on traditional depictions of nude paintings in western art at the time, Modigliani has introduced his distinctive and revolutionary technique of brushwork. The paint is applied in short stabbing strokes and then manipulated whilst still wet to heighten the tense outlines and sensuality of the female form. Modigliani has re-worked her hair, by using the end of the paintbrush to create structure to the strands of hair.  Female Nude is a truly captivating reproduction worthy of a special place in a bedroom or living room space.

The Artist


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.
