Amedeo Modigliani, 1884-1920
Modigliani modernized two of the enduring themes of art history: the portrait and the nude. Characterized by a sense of melancholy, elongated proportions, and mask-like faces. Modigliani's portraits are both specific and highly stylized, each uniquely revealing its sitter's inner life, while at the same time unmistakably "Modiglianized."
Suitable for the complete beginner through to experienced painters.
FEE: $180: includes stretched canvas - participants can choose their preferred size!
