Amedeo Modigliani and the Primitivi Senesi - Overlapping of paintings

The current study of our Centre is on the origin of Modigliani's works. The reason of the placement of the Documentation Centre in Tuscany, is a cornerstone to establish the stylistic feature of the artist, of purely italian derivation, Tuscan and more particularly inspired by the Primitivi Senesi..

Amedeo Modigliani's painting reaches completeness, starting learning from Macchiaioli themselves, in further synthesis that clearly is suggested by the observation and from having assimilated the composition of the great masters of the '200 - '300, without forgetting the giants of the past .

Almond eyes, the shape of the nose, mouth like heart, long and sloping necks and not least breasts often asymmetric, inevitably recall the icons of the '200 - '300.
