Modigliani Inspired


I try to visit the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto as often as I can.   It is so inspiring, humbling and such a privilege to experience original artwork by people whose names are written in art history books.   Some exhibits stay with me and move me more than others.   The Modigliani show tops my list to date.   What a fascinating life he lead.   You can read about it here.   When I look around my house at the artwork on my walls, I see glimpses of Modigliani's work in my choices.   Imagine my delight to discover a collage sheet also inspired by this talented artist.   It is created by Ceremony and can be found on Etsy here.  As you can see, I've been playing with some of the images.

Hello Heather,
I really love your two pieces here. The design, theme and feel are fab! I do love this style too, Modigliani had such a unique style of painting. I like his Gypsy Woman with Baby painting. I don't know for sure if that is the name, but it might be close.
It is interesting how we can be influenced by artists we resonate with. I know I am too, but I love many different styles, so, lol, I get quite the eclectic ideas!
Hugs,
Terri

I´m not sure, but I don´t think I´ve ever seen a Modigliani in real life - so you´ve made me jealous because I love his artwork! Did you know that there´s a film about him with Andy Garcia as Modigliani?
