Reclining Nude Oil Painting
Appreciate the sensuality of a beautifully stylized Amedeo Modigliani nude oil painting replica. The woman’s form is celebrated in an obvious way while remaining artistic and tasteful.
The position of the subject and the way she’s facing the viewer yet seems to be gazing downward are inspired and purposeful choices by the artist and contrasting deep and pale warm spectrum colors evoke a feeling of true passion and beauty.
This piece fits into the home of any art collector making an undeniably bold statement.
Modigliani’s celebrated series of reclining nudes, begun in 1916. The paintings are influenced by Italian Renaissance representations of Venus and other idealized female figures.
In this painting from 1917, the model’s stylized, outlined body spans the entire canvas. Viewed close-up and from above, her hands and feet disappear outside the frame.
Her creamy skin glows against the dark red bed or couch. Unlike depictions of Venus from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century, in which mythological or allegorical attributes provide a context for the figure’s nudity, Amedeo Modigliani provocatively presents his Reclining Nude without any such references, highlighting the figure’s eroticism.
