Handicrafts

Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Amedeo Modigliani - Italian Artist

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 5:28 AM
Amedeo Modigliani was an Italian artist and sculptor. He was born on July 12, 1884, into a Jewish family at Livorno, in Tuscany. In short, he was also known as ‘Modi’ and was handsome and amorous. Today his elegant portraits and lush nudes at once evoke his name. He was greatly influenced by African art, to which many of his deformations of the human figure are due, most notably the elongation of faces. He was also interested in Cambodian sculpture. The circumstances forced Modigliani to struggle against poverty and chronic ill health, and ultimately died due to tuberculosis and excesses of drink and drugs at the age of 35. After his death, his mistress Jeanne Hebuterne killed herself the following day while carrying Modigliani’s unborn child. 

Amedeo Modigliani worked in Micheli's Art School as a very young boy. He preferred to paint indoors. The paintings of Modigliani, highly characteristic and delicate, are marked by sinuous lines, simple and flat forms. After 1915, he devoted himself entirely to painting and produced some of his best paintings. Some of his famous paintings are Reclining Nude (1919, Museum of Modern Art, New York City) and Nude on a Divan (1918, National Gallery, Washington, D.C.) etc. Modigliani began painting elongated portraits and nudes, which attracted little praise from critics. All paintings are courtesy of Art of Legend India.
