Amedeo Modigliani: Alice

I chose this piece because it is a slight contrast from Modigliani's typical rendition of the female figure. Usually he paints women naked, but here, "Alice" is fully clothed. This made me wonder whether or not this model was someone he knew personally, as opposed to his typical choice of prostitute models. Maybe because he had a personal connection with this person, he chose not to paint them nude, as a sign of respect.
