5th Grade Modigliani's

Modigliani Self-Portraits
5th Grade

Amedeo Modigliani was famous for his elongated and elegant portraits, painted in Paris back in the early 1900s. I love his portraits with elongated faces in soulful colors. The heads and necks were long and narrow, giving his subjects a very graceful look.

I got this idea from a great website: but I change a few things in order to incorporate more content.  The bright colors of the oil pastels on the black construction paper really make these pop.
