Ginger and the Modigliani Portraits.




        Today's Art Tour will be with the lovely, Ginger the Giraffe.  She currently holds the office of treasurer of the Gallery Gals.  Her choice for today's artist is Amedeo Modigliani.  Ginger adores the portraits that he is so well known for.  His work was influenced by African Art, which was quite obvious to Ginger right from the get-go.


       What really turned her head, and what she really appreciated about his work, were the elongated portraits he did.  She felt somehow, the artist understood her on a very personal level. 

        Her "art fantasy", is to go back in time, meet Modigliani, and have him paint her portrait.

                          Hope you enjoyed today's little art tour!!
