Just like Modigliani – Grade 3/4 A&B

Grade 3/4 A&B students have recently finished their Amedeo Modigliani inspired portraits. Above and below are just a few but I will be sure to photograph and upload some more. The students have done a fabulous job and they should all be very proud of their achievements during this Unit of work. These were created using chalk pastel on black card.

Key features of Modigliani’s portraits:

  • He used basic shapes and painted long, oval faces with stretched out necks
    and long limbs.
  • Eyes, noses and mouths in the faces are not positioned in the ‘right’ place.
  • His portraits were often outlined in black.
  • Sometimes the faces are tilted.
