At the Met :: Amedeo Modigliani – Reclining Nude

herocious

This is what the plaque for this oil on canvas painting reads:

Modigliani began his celebrated series of thirty reclining nudes in 1916. Languorously sprawled across a dark couch, the model is characteristically shown close-up and from above. Although rooted in the Renaissance depiction of Venus, his eroticized nudes are devoid of mythological or allegorical references.

TOE goes places so you don’t have to.
