Amedeo Modigliani’s “Reclining Nude”, painted in 1917, just a short period before his tragic early death, is a stunning sculptural work of poise and balance. Modigliani painted his first female nudes around 1908 and soon gave life to a body of work that has since resounded with presence and poignant intensity. But it was not until 1916, fairly late in the artist’s short career, that Modigliani dedicated himself to female nudes with particular commitment. Depicting naked figures lying outstretched or half-length, sometimes sitting or squatting, a wide selection of paintings was exhibited for the first time in a show at the Galerie Berthe Weil. At the height of the inauguration on a cold December day in 1917, the exhibition was closed on charges of obscenity. Indeed, it is often hard to see the original shock of the new ideas that were taking war-time Europe by storm, but deep in the languid figures of Modigliani’s oeuvre it is possible to see a distant, detached yearning for dramatic change. A key figure in the Montparnasse scene, Modigliani was a social being whose self-destructive habits soon got the best of him. Having honed his skill early in life in his native Livorno in Italy, the artist was more interested in Renaissance art than by the contemporary ingenuities of Picasso’s Cubism. Nonetheless, his forceful, dominant lines, stylized faces, and haunting temporality gave life to a new strand of Modernist painting. Like Cezanne, Modigliani relied almost exclusively on color to represent volume and perspective, and sought sources of inspiration outside of Europe, such as African sculptures and anthropological artifacts.
