A fine-art reproduction of "Blue Caryatid II" by Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani, known for his mask-like faces and elongation of form. He was first influenced by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, but around 1907 he became fascinated with the work of Paul Cézanne. Eventually Modigliani developed his own unique style, one that cannot be adequately categorized with those of other artists. This work depicts a caryatid, a sculpted female figure serving as an architectural support taking the place of a column. The word "Caryatid" originally referred to "women from Carie" (a region in the Peloponnese) who were taken as captives by the Greeks because they had supported the Persians. Subsequently, these characters found their way into Greek architecture, as in the famous Erechtheion on the Acropolis. Custom frame.
