Portrait of a Polish Woman

Amedeo Modigliani (Italian, 1884–1920)
Notorious 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.
