Modigliani settled in Paris in 1906 and participated in the lively artistic scene centered around the famous Bateau-Lavoir in Montmartre, a complex of studios that included those of Picasso, Juan Gris, and Kees van Dongen. This study of a caryatid, perhaps for a sculpture that was never executed, shows the influence of the African masks that so fascinated many avant-garde artists of the time.
