Explore Amedeo Modigliani, Constantin Brancusi, and more!

Although Modigliani is known primarily as a painter, he fostered ambitions to become a sculptor early on in his career. Paul Alexandre, his friend and first faithful patron, engineered a meeting with Constantin Brancusi in 1909. This encouraged Modigliani to return to stone carving and for almost three years he virtually abandoned portrait painting. Some 25 sculptures survive from this formative period in his career.

Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) was one of the founding figures of modern sculpture and one of the most original artists of the twentieth-century. His groundbreaking carvings introduced abstraction and primitivism into sculpture for the first time, and were as important as Picasso’s paintings to the development of modern art.Constantin Brancusi  Sleeping Muse 1909-10  Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture   ADAGR, Paris and DACS, London 2004

THE CARIATIDES - MODIGLIANI. Leon Indenbaum, a Russian sculptor, became friends with Modigliani and Soutine, from whom he bought his first paintings. Indenbaum says: "One day in 1916, I went to see Modigliani Boulevard Raspail in a vacant lot where he carved the Cariatides, and when I entered his hut I saw on the wall a letter of expulsion if he did not pay his rents In order to avoid this expulsion I bought him one of the "Cariatides" and left it to him.
