"Modern Bronze Figure - Karyatide - signed Amedeo Modigliani"
The „Karyatide“ is based on a draft by Amedeo Modigliani, which was originated between the years 1913 and 1915. The concept comes from the architecture and describes sculptures, which replaces pillars of a building. In this sense these figures shall carry a load and Amedeo Modigliani transfers this meaning on his female nude. From 1910 to 1913 he used this theme again and again for his paintings and sculptures. The figure, which was made of 100 percent bronze, seems on one side dynamically and on other side statically. This tension between liberty and obligation, something to do, is expressed in this motif. Elongated forms belong to the typical characteristics of Amedeo Modigliani, whose signature is to see on the bronze figure. A flat marble base provides the sculpture with the necessary stability.
