A wonderful Vintage Modigliani print on stretched canvas. Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920), never achieved recognition or success during his artistic life & career in early 20th Century Paris; however since his death in 1920 has become recognised as one of the greats of 20th Century Modernism; particulary for his uniquely distinctive style of elongated faces and bodies in his figurative portrait paintings.
He was known to have started drawing & been preoccupied with art world from an early age. He led a turbulant life as a young adult artist living a vagabond existance in Paris, filled with debauchery, absinthe and hashish addiction, which masked his underlying ill health, the stories from this period in his life are as legendary as the art itself.
