Modigliani Abstract Female Nude Kneeling Statue, Assorted SizesPN# PA19MO
Seated Female Nude (1913-1915):
Modigliani's sculptures were heavily inspired by traditional African and Oceanic sculpture. This charcoal sketch displays the same sculptural characteristics.
Modigliani drew many sketches of nudes during his lifetime. They have rhythmic geometry in pencil, and are here adapted into 3D. The female fleshiness is interpreted with the perfection of a protractor.
In 1912, the art of sculpture seemed to have taken a heavy toll. Modigliani was completely exhausted by the heavy and dust work. He was forced to devote his attentions once again to painting and was inspired by Cham Soutine, his new neighbor. He was particularly impressed by the technique and definitive lines of this Lithuanian Impressionist.
Part of the Parastone Mouseion 3D Collection of museum replicas adapted from famous sketches, paintings, and museum originals.
Made from resin, white.

Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920)
Amedeo Modigliani's work is recognized immediately by many people because of the typical elongated shapes. His paintings show his passion for sculpting, a craft which he had to give up in 1915 due to ill health. He was born in the Tuscan town of Livorno and received his academic education in Florence and Venice. In 1906 he established himself in the famous Montmartre area in Paris, where his talent was instantly recognized by the East European avant-garde.
He had a short and eventful life, he was extremely driven and longed for recognition. But his life was also marked by alcoholism, metaphysical fears and progressive tuberculosis. At the age of 36, Modigliani left the world and oeuvre that shows a sincere, obsessive search for truth and purity within art.
