Amedeo Modigliani was born in Livorno Italy at the end of the 19th century. A handsome man who attracted female attention, he worked primarily in Paris where his history of poor health combined with wild lifestyle and overworking, eventually contributed to death at the young age of only 35. Once a sculptor, Modigliani became later primarily a painter due to the impact of the first world war on finding materials and his compromised health. His paintings are known for their intense colors, elongated faces and almond eyes. His reclining nudes, thought scandalous at the time are amongst the most iconic images of odalisques in our modern visual language.
