Popping into Modigaliani’s exhibition proved interesting. Looking at how life and society is perceived and represented though art fascinates me. It is a direct representation of how people, their friendships and their lives are inspired by the society in which they live, and are affected by world events. Watching how his work and style changed as he moved to Paris, and then how it changed again when he moved to the south of France to avoid the wrath of WW1. Socialising with Picasso and inspired by the vibrancy and liberal attitude of Paris and how it opened his artistic eye and changed his work and approach to paint on canvas.
Although I don’t particularly resonate with his style of portrait, as a portrait photographer I am inspired to create a collection that I would otherwise not consider.
