He sent her to buy some cheep wine. She brought him some cider. He got mad at her. The little girl started to cry. He said : "Okay, then you have to pose for me. Go stand in the corner."
True story or legend?
The size of this work is quite big - 116x73 cm. Usually Modigliani used this format for adult models. That means that the little girl was painted almost life size. The painting was completed in 1918 and was the first exhibited in Prague in 1923. It is in a private collection right now.
It is really difficult for me to picture this masterpiece in someones living room. Do the people who own the Little Girl in Blue say "Good morning" to her? I would.
Dear all - I'm going to take a break from the blog for about a week. I hope you all have a great time. See you soon; I will bring you exciting new photos!
