One of my criticisms of art museums is they don't spend enough time on the bios of the painters. The back stories add to the art itself. The relationship of the painters to each other is often quite interesting as well.
Reading the biography of Modigliani is quite interesting. Also his work is quite unique in its look in both sculpture and painting. I would like to place a print of his in my office, but at the moment I am
looking for more paintings and prints of Guyana.
Guyana is a shining example of a wonderful people governed by inept Marxist thieves. Rather than develop parties with competing ideas it developed two ethnic parties with the same lousy idea. They took a paradise with plenty of resources and made it into a place where people pretty much have to emigrate to have a decent life.
For the moment I enjoy unknown painters of places I have been or could have been. I don't like well
known landmarks as they are cliches. What I prefer is a landscape with a few structures. When I am in country I will purchase a few for my office.
For a young daughter Modigliani is unique enough to study. She prefers to do rather than observe at this point. However, when I make a trip to a museum she finds a pretext to tag along.
