This painting is by artist, Amedeo Modigliani (1881-1920). The painting is one of Modigliani’s Caryatid’s (1913). His delicate, stylized art was based on line. He primarily painted female nudes and portraits. Modigliani used line to define the face, form and contours. He later filled the areas with flat colors. A Caryatid is an architectural supporting column in the shape of a female figure. In the painting, line marks the figure's outer and inner contours and is in front of a plain background. Modigliani cared for sculpture and his series of Caryatids showed this attraction.
