The image of Cocteau is included in the Tate modern exhibition, which can be seen in nearly 100 works, and the family resemblance is obvious. Modigliani’s image has always been smooth and ovate, and share critics have often described it as a “lean” aesthetic. He has received the African masks and Renaissance paintings inspired many precedents, but he seems to know clearly that he is from the 20th century the rules of the machine geometry and geometric patterns.

The mechanical aspect of modigliani’s painting was not a mistake. It doesn’t prevent him from making an elegant and impressive portrait, and it certainly won’t prevent him from rendering his nakedness in vulgar and obscene ways. Instead, the paintings are made because they have weird mechanical properties. Modigliani is arguably the first romantic machine age, and its visual systems are exquisitely designed to drive us.
The key to appreciating modigliani’s modernism is to observe the similarities and differences between his paintings. Modigliani’s people are not the messy people, but the fully prepared modigliani products. Is it an exaggeration to compare them to androids? Karel Capek coined the term robot in 1920, when the first robot appeared in popular theatrical productions. Since the launch of the movement in 1909 in the FT Marinetti, comparisons between man and machine have attracted the attention of the Italian futurists. Modigliani’s inhumane ovists tend to fit into the zeitgeist.
Of course, modigliani remains committed to physical pleasure in a short life. When his friend, Gino Severini, recruited him, he refused to become a futurist. The biographer sees the event as a historical footnote, at best a shrewd marketing strategy for Severini. If, however, see modi ANI art rather than in the old Bohemian style, you will understand why he may put forward in the seve prelude – and want to know what modigliani accepted.
