Amedeo Modigliani

Amedeo Modigliani was an Italian painter who was educated at the academies of Florence and Venice. In Rome he studied Michelangelo in particular. In 1906 he went to Paris and became friends with Pablo Picasso and Maurice Utrillo, and he soon distinguished himself as the most eccentric of the young artists.

His interest in African sculpture brought him together with the sculptor Constantin Brancusi, and his sculpture and painting from this time are strongly cubist. Both as a sculptor and a painter, his strength was in the line, and he gradually developed a linear and flat portrait art, characterized by a warm orange-brown color, in the form of a strong extension of certain body parts, such as the neck and nose. Through his graphic and decorative style, he created a subjective expressionism. The National Museum/National Gallery in Oslo owns the painting Portrait of Mme Zborowska (1918).
