    Modigliani has depicted Adrienne as a long necked sweetly smiling doleful – eyed woman. Modigliani was quite skilled at portraiture and the elongated richly colored female portraits painted by him are very famous. He painted a variety of people ranging from his friends, lovers, patrons and pretty girls who happened to catch his eyes. His art is expressive and intense.

    In this portrait, the woman's long graceful curves and simplified features are typical of Modigliani’s approach to the human figure. The portrait is quite vibrant and expressive. The female subject of this portrait stands with a twist in her elongated neck, which is a Modigliani trademark. She is with a stylized and mask like head and a columnar neck. All these characteristics give her a blank ashen expression. She looks at the viewer head-on with a most piercing air in her eyes. She is depicted as an intense woman of a compassionate nature. The portrait has relied heavily on the expressive and wide use of color to create emotional expression and unerring form.

    Although color is applied liberally, the strokes are thick, jagged and for the most part, random. The artist's brushstrokes are also particularly long. Color is of much importance in this portrait as it draws the viewer in and allows the viewer's eyes to be brought around the piece. In the background, the strokes are long and applied at a rapid pace. The weighty application has created a brilliant textural finish.

Amedeo Modigliani1884 - 1920. Born in Livorno, Italy, Modigliani spent almost his entire brief yet influential career in Paris. He began as a sculptor, with Brancusi as his master. Upon the outbreak of WWI, Modigliani turned to painting, influenced by the art of Africa and Oceania. The flat, masklike faces of his portraits, with almond eyes and elongated features, are unique to his style. While he fraternized with the cubists, the Art Deco masters, Toulouse-Lautrec, and even Picasso, Modigliani remained independent of any movement. His art is truly unique.

During the early 1900s in Paris, the Italian painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani, (b. July 12, 1884, d. Jan. 24, 1920), developed a unique style. Today his graceful portraits and lush nudes at once evoke his name, but during his brief career few apart from his fellow artists were aware of his gifts. Modigliani had to struggle against poverty and chronic ill health, dying of tuberculosis and excesses of drink and drugs at the age of 35.
