Italian Painter Amedeo Modigliani, who lived between 1884-1920, was born in Livorno, Italy, to an immigrant family. After suffering from tuberculosis in 1895 and typhoid fever in 1898, he had to leave his high school education, and for this reason, he started to take painting lessons by turning to art. When Guglielmo Micheli, whom he was tutoring, said that he needed an academic education, Modigliani started the School of Fine Arts in Florence in 1902 and enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice a year later. Modigliani, who settled in Paris in 1906, became a neighbor to Pablo Picasso.
When he met Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi, he quit painting and started sculpting, and he was successful in this field as well. Although his works exhibited at the Salon d'Automne in 1912 attracted attention, he finished his sculpture work completely in 1914 and returned to painting. With the encouragement of his painter friend Leopold Zborovski, he opened his first solo exhibition of 32 paintings at the Berthe Weill Gallery in Paris in 1917, but the exhibition was closed by the Paris police on the grounds that it contained a large number of nude women's works.
Modigliani became acquainted with African sculptures and masks through the sculptor Brancusi, dealing with sculptor art until 1913 and then returning to painting, but his experience as a sculptor would lead to basic results that would reflect on the simplification of the image and the use of color on his style.
In her first work, The Jewish Woman, she was relatively less influenced by the new wave of cubism, which can be mostly linked to the Blue Period of Steinlen, Lautrec and Picasso. Many women and nude studies have been featured in his works.
Amedeo Modigliani Painting Style
He is sometimes referred to as an expressionist, but it is not easy to give this quality to Modigliani's typical tact. Although he was never interested in representing nature, the artist he most respected was Cézanne, who painted only three landscapes. The elongated canon of his figures shows his taste for Mannerism and associates female characters with the images of Parmigianino's paintings. Modigliani's mastery of lines, colors and brushstrokes shows itself in The Man Who Plays the Cello, as well as his unique technique.
