Portrait of a Polish Woman
Amedeo Modigliani, Italian, 1884 - 1920
Oil on canvas
1963-181-48The Louis E. Stern Collection, 1963
LabelNotorious for his fiery temper, his passionate love affairs, and his severe poverty, Amedeo Modigliani was the consummate Bohemian artist in modern Paris. This portrait depicts an acquaintance from the circle of his Polish-born dealer Leopold Zborowski. The woman’s long, graceful curves and simplified features are typical of Modigliani’s approach to the human figure.
