Madame Georges van Muyden - Amadeo Modigliani
I decided to use this painting by Modigliani for a number of reasons. First, like all of his works, I like his use of canvas space and his choice of colors; His style is identifiable, unique and elegant. I specifically like the way he drew this woman's figure. After doing some research, this was one of the first pieces he had done for commission in his career. Finally, I just appreciate the piece overall. Modigliani used the space well, used his colors well and put together a painting that was both realistic and portrayed his unique skill set.
