"Seated Female Nude" by Amedeo Modigliani
I was quite surprised to see this painting on display at the Courtauld Gallery. Modigliani sightings are quite rare and always more thrilling when unexpected. Again, I am amazed by Sam Courtauld’s prescience. He must have done a deal with the devil! Just last week a Modigliani nude was auctioned for over $170,000,000! This collection of impressionist and post-impressionist works, all on display in one small room, is truly mind blowing in vision and value. The only thing lacking is a GNAY.
