About this artwork

Nu Sur Coussin Bleu or Nude on a Blue Cushion, is a 1917 painting by Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani. The original is oil on linen measuring about 65 x 101 cm and is held in collection at the National Gallery of Art, Washington. This is a medium size art print from a Swiss publisher.

1884-1920 Amedeo Modigliani was born in Italy in 1884, but lived in Paris for most of his adult life. It was there that he discovered the works of Toulouse-Lautrec, Georges Rouault and Pablo Picasso. At this time the strong influence of Paul Cezanne was evident in his distortion of the figure and free use of large, flat areas of colour. In 1909 he met Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi who kindled his interest in sculpture to which he devoted most of his time until 1914. From 1915 on, Modigliani devoted himself entirely to painting, producing some of his best portraits. His interest in African masks and sculpture is evident by the flat, mask-like faces with almond eyes, twisted noses, pursed mouths and elongated necks. Modigliani's portraits convey a strong sense of personality. His personal style is instantly recognisable by his elongated and simplified portraits and nudes. During his short life, Modigliani had to struggle against poverty and chronic ill health, and at the age of thirty-five died of tuberculosis hastened by a dissolute lifestyle. He was a genius, a womaniser and a victim of drugs and alcohol.

What Our Customers Say: 

Really fantastic site, so easy to navigate and extremely impressive selection of postage destinations. I am an American living in Australia and my brother is getting married in August. I struggled to think of an "Aussie" wedding gift that wouldn''t be tacky or a dust-collector, and your beautiful site not only gave me the perfect gift(s), but took care of shipping as well! Wonderful!
