Modigliani style portraits

  1. 1. Mrs. Comstock
  2. 2.  Amedeo Clemente Modigliani was an Italian painter and sculptor who worked mainly in France. He was born in 1884 in Italy and died when he was just 35 years old in France.
  3. 3.  He had a modern style characterized by mask-like faces and elongation of form.
  4. 4.  Primarily a figurative artist, he became known for paintings and sculptures.
  5. 5. How are hissculpturessimilar to hispaintings?
  6. 6. He oftenpaintedportraits ofhis wife(JeanneHebuterne), as seen in thisimage.
  7. 7. What are somethings youwould thinkabout whenmixing paint topaint a portraitlike this?
  8. 8. It could be that it was said he developed the belief that the only route to true creativity was through defiance and disorder.
  9. 9.  Early literary influences from his maternal grandfather exposed him to philosophical literature by Nietzsche… Nietzsche was famous for quotes such as: • That which does not kill us makes us stronger. • He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.
  10. 10.  He was also influenced by the writer Lautréamont who was said to be a huge influence to Surrealism. • A quote by Lautreamont: “As beautiful as the chance encounter of a sewing machine and an umbrella on an operating table.” ― Comte de Lautréamont • Think of what you know about Surrealism… How does this quote seem to fit with surrealism?
  11. 11.  Modigliani had tuberculosis and often masked his pain and coughing by drugs and alcohol… he did not like isolation and wanted desperately to preserve his camaraderie. These acts of self-destruction in combination with his tuberculosis led to a tragically short lived life.
  12. 12. He died penniless and destitute, but today his paintings and sculptures are worth millions.Musee de lOrangerie in Paris
  13. 13.  We are going to start by drawing a stylized portrait lightly in pencil. You will include an elongated face, stretched neck, and large, almond shaped eyes. The rest is up to you. It is not super realistic so it allows for a looser interpretation of the facial proportions. We will paint with tempera paint and finish it with some charcoal details if you choose.
