Reclining Nude, Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920).

I have this print in my studio and saw it behind and through the freesias so thought I would try and make a painting of it.
Modigliani was deeply impressed by primitive African masks and you can see the influence in his faces. He elongated the body and established his own unique style which I happen to really like.
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
