Caryatid (1913-1915)
In 1912, the art of sculpture seemed to have taken a heavy toll. Modigliani was completely exhausted by the heavy and dusty work. He was forced to devote his attentions once again to painting and was inspired by Chaim Soutine, his new neighbor. He was particularly impressed by the technique and definitive lines of the Lithuanian Impressionist. Modigliani's sculptures were heavily inspired by traditional African and Oceanic Sculpture. This sketch displays the same sculptural characteristics.

Measures: 8.75"H x 7"W x 3.75"D. Part of the Parastone Collection of museum replicas and adaptations from paintings.

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 artistic life (1884-1920), 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 forty, Modigliani left the world an oeuvre that shows a sincere, obsessive search for truth and purity within art.
