Primitive Inspiration from Amedeo Modigliani

I've been obsessed lately with everything Primitive, and have always been fascinated with portraits, so when I came across this Modigliani print, "Gypsy Woman with Baby," at a vintage shop on Killingsworth, I thought I had died and gone to Figurative Heaven! Get it?...
You can all tell that its on a chipped old piece of wood, making it WAY cooler, right? I seriously considered stripping my studio of everything modern and replacing it with all things simple, rustic, folky and/or ready to crumble, but as my tax return is for saving, not spending, this year, I will have to make due with sending my wish list out into the universe (and sharing it with you....). Please enjoy these beautifully soulful pieces found on Etsy. Just don't buy them because I want them! Or if you do, don't let me catch you...

By the way, in the course of looking up the history of this piece, I came across this cool, though not recently updated, blog called Artist of the Week for Kids. Here's the link to their write up on Modigliani: http://bit.ly/eL68Xg
