After Modigliani - "Maude Abrantes"



I was able to spend another productive day at my studio at the 509 Artspace today working on furthering my skills in acrylics.

The end-product is this reproduction of Modig's "Maude Abrantes," which he painted in 1907. I googled Maude, but only came up with more of this image. Who she was and what she did in life and how she came to be in front of Modig's canvas are things I would like to know more about.

I'm really enjoying these, and hopefully learning.

Wow, you picked a tough one this time but you still did well. My favorite Modigliani is his Paul Guillaume.

She has a wisdom in those deep set eyes. And it looks like you are enjoying your acrylic experience. I am enjoying your series as well. We have so much to learn from the Master's, huh?
