Modigliani et le Primitivisme – モディリアーニ展


I had a fairly quick scan of Modigliani exhibition at the National Art Center. Firstly, the fact that primitive African art affected Modigliani’s ultimate form in a way like Copernican change was viewed among the collection of cariatid works.
The other impressive finding to me was the background grey color of his portraits that tended to blend with subtle greenish, something like felon herb color that overlapped with genuinely Japanese bitterness to stimulate a mood of intimacy. The languid air of Modigliani was abundant in the paintings, and the exhibition seemed to have been filled with female visitors.
