AMEDEO MODIGLIANI, italian painter (1884-1920)

Amedeo Modigliani was the bohemian artist par excellence - his posthumous legend is almost as famous as Van Gogh's. In stylistic terms he was an oddity: contemporary with the Cubists, but not part of their movement, he forms a bridge between the generation of Toulouse-Lautrec and the Art Deco painters of the 1920s.

Modigliani studied Fine Arts in Florence and in 1906 went to Paris, where he met Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau and other vangardists of that time.
He received influence of the fauvism and later on from his rumanian friend sculptor Constantin Brancusi. Mostly of his artwork are drawings and studies of the human figures,epecially oval faces that so popular made him.
