A PORTRAIT OF A NAMESAKE

Madam Pompadour   Portrait Of Beatrice Hastings - Amedeo Modigliani - www.modigliani-foundation.org

This is one of Modigliani's portraits.  Her name was Beatrice Hastings.  She was his lover for a few years.

I love his portraits!  All those elongated faces and sitting or reclining nudes offer me a measure of peace and joy.  Don't ask me why.  I can't explain it.
