AMEDEO MODIGLIANI (1884 1920) Portrait de Gabrielle, 1918 Mine de plomb sur papier, dédicacé \‘à Cendrdrars' en haut à droite 43.3 x 26.4 cm - 17 x 10 3/8 in. Laid pencil on paper, dedicated «à Cendrdrars» upper right PROVENANCE Collection Blaise Cendrars (offert par l'artiste, 1918) Transmis familialement Vente Christie's Paris, 11 avril 2013 Collections Aristophil EXPOSITION Tokyo, Musée Daimaru; Kobe, Musée Hankuy; Shimonoseki, Centre Culturel Daimaru et Sogo, Musée Naga, Le Bateau-Lavoir et La Ruche: Montmartre et Montparnasse, septembre 1994-mars 1995, n° 112. Modigliani rencontre Gabrielle lorsque celle-ci est l'amante, discrète, de Blaise Cendrars qui est encore marié à Féla Pozanska. Cette jeune fille de vingt ans a su séduire le poète, alors que ce dernier traverse une période trouble. Il écrit d'elle qu'elle a «Un minois de chatte, le corps élégant, un peu androgyne, elle gagnait ses croûtes en posant pour les peintres de Montparnasse, notamment dans l'atelier d'Angel Zarraga, ce mexicain de Paris qu'Apollinaire surnommait l'Ange du Cubisme»1. Celle que son entourage surnomme Gaby se pâme d'amour, en vain, pour l'artiste qui ne l'affiche qu'à de rares occasions en public. Modigliani réalise son portrait et le dédicace à Cendrars. Le portrait répond aux critères stylistiques affectionnés par l'artiste: la composition d'ensemble est directement héritée du cubisme et les traits du visage évoquent les sculptures réalisées par l'artiste au début de sa carrière, inspirée des masques de l'art primitif. Modigliani met Gabrielle when she was having a discreet affair with Blaise Cendrars, who was still married to Féla Pozanska. The girl of twenty had seduced the poet when he was going through a troubled period. He wrote of her that she had \“a little cat's face and an elegant, somewhat androgynous body; she earned her bread and butter posing for the painters of Montparnasse, particularly Angel Zarraga, the Parisian Mexican nicknamed \“the Angel of Cubism\” by Apollinaire.\”1 The woman known to her friends as Gaby was deeply in love with the artist, who hardly ever went out with her in public. Modigliani painted her portrait and dedicated it to Cendrars. The portrait fulfils the artist's stylistic criteria: the composition as a whole is directly influenced by Cubism, while Gaby's features evoke Modigliani's early sculptures, inspired by primitive masks.

Description:
Amedeo Modigliani Italian Cubist Ink on Paper Ink on paper. Featuring a cubist sketch of nude. Signed Modiigliani on the lower left corner. Attributed to Amedeo Modigliani (Italian, 1884-1920). 29 x 21 cm (11.4 x 8.3 inches). PROVENANCE: Private European collection (Lisbon, Portugal) Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) was an Italian artist known for his unique elongated style of portraiture. Characterized by lengthened limbs, almond eyes, and swooping noses, the lasting influence of sculpture - particularly African masks - was prominent in the renderings of his subjects, including his wife the painter Jeanne Hebuterne. \“What I am searching for is neither the real nor the unreal, but the subconscious, the mystery of what is instinctive in the human race,\” he once said. Born on July 12, 1884 in Livorno, Italy, Modigliani began to paint as a teenager and enrolled in the Reale Istituto di Belle Arti in Venice in 1903. Upon his move to Paris in 1906,he studied at the Academie Colarossi, finding inspiration in the works of Paul Gauguin, Paul Cezanne, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. The young artist\’s friendship with Constantin Brancusi sparked his interest in sculpture, informing his artistic tendencies toward curvilinear rhythms and protracted vertical forms. After 1915, Modigliani devoted himself exclusively to painting, emerging as one of the School of Paris\’s les maudits - the cursed - along with Chaïm Soutine, Suzanne Valadon, and her son Maurice Utrillo - so named because of their impoverished, bohemian lifestyle. Modigliani\’s prodigious talent was cut short when he died at the age of 35 on January 24, 1920 in Paris, France due to complications from tubercular meningitis aggravated by alcoholism. Today, the artist\’s works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, the Musee de l\’Orangerie in Paris, and the Kunstmuseum Basel, among others.

Italian Cubist Oil on Canvas Signed Modigliani Oil on stretched canvas, featuring seated woman. Italian Cubist School, signed Modigliani, possible signature Amedeo Modigliani on lower right corner, bearing signature of Amedeo Modigliani. 55 x 42 cm (21.7 x 16.5 inches). PROVENANCE: Private European estate. Italian painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) is celebrated for his iconic portraits, which, with often mask-like faces and striking blue-eyes, have become iconic works of the early 20th century. Inspired by Existentialist philosophy and a rejection of his bourgeois childhood, Modigliani chose not to paint landscapes, like many of his contemporaries, instead using portraiture to explore both his own psychology and that of his subjects, who were typically fellow artists or lovers. Modigliani also painted highly sexualize female nudes that at the time, were daringly erotic. His style is figurative but also highly expressive, and his subjects are shown with quirks and asymmetries, recalling the portraiture of Paul Cezanne, whose work Modigliani greatly admired. Modigliani befriended Pablo Picasso after moving to Paris in 1906, and like Picasso, he drew inspiration from art of so-called "primitive" cultures, his work often resembling African or Pre-Columbian statuary.
