In the Style of Modigliani – Portrait Atcs

I just joined and signed up for my first card swap over there.   We were to make cards based on the work of Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920).  I’ve always liked Modigliani, so it was fun to make these cards.  I managed to squeeze a self-portrait in.  I’m the one with the glasses.  Michael makes an appearance as well. is an atc trading group that is for people primarily interested in hand-drawn and hand-painted cards.   Even if you aren’t interested in trading you should definitely check out the gallery and see some of the work on display there.

  1. Love the Modigliani cards Mellanie. Michael looks particularly good. I am still trying to get to see the film.

    The ATC gallery has got some amazing images.


  2. Thanks for the lovely comments. I am so pleased that you like these. I didn’t know that there was a film based on his life. I must go check that out!


  3. I am glad you are going to look about seeing the movie about Modigliani. I would also like to recommend two other artist movies that are a must see. 1. Vincent and Theo (1990) starring Tim Roth and Paul Rhys. This was a very inspiring film for me. 2. The Impressionists (BBC Miniseries 2006) starring Charlie Condou, James Lance, Richard Armitage. I find these two films great to view when I am in a slump and feeling I just can’t go on…Very inspiring viewing!! If you watch either of these please let me know what you thought of them. You can write me at
