Modigliani’s most important theme was portrait paintings and full length human’s bodies, equally in the pictures and in the statuettes.
Throughout his life existence, he had modest public achievements, but following Modigliani’s death he gained superior reputation and his paintings and sculptors realized very high prices. Creating his works for the duration of that fruitful time of modern so called “isms” - Futurism, Surrealism, Dadaism and Cubism, - Amadeo Modigliani did not prefer to be classified inside any of these established, essential movements. Modigliani was uncategorizaiable, obstinately persisting on his differentiation. His motto and credo for art and artist was “I paint what I see.”
