As it has been often mentioned, the Italian Jewish painter had a strong preference for portraying the people who surrounded him, be it those close to him, like his common-law wife and his artist friends, be it the anonymous bohemians that populated his life in the streets of Paris or Nice. As such, it is exceedingly uncommon to find a commissioned painting by Modigliani, which might even have had some influence on the tragic and destitute character of his last days.
This oil on canvas, painted between 1916 and 1917 and now in possession of the Museu de Arte de São Paulo, in São Paulo, Brazil, is one of those very rare portraits commissioned from Modigliani. The model is one Madame Georges van Muyden, a name now mostly unknown except for the title of this painting, who has been immortalized as one who, even if she isn’t famous, will forever be known as someone who, at that time, had the money and connections necessary to have one of the great Modernist painters produce a portrait of her.
The woman is rendered in Modigliani’s characteristic style, with her features elongated, especially the neck, nose, and face, and her eyes have pupils so large that seem almost to be empty pools of blue, and from their positioning, they seem to be independently looking at different sides of the room. The woman’s skin is very white, almost like alabaster, which brings out the pink blush on her cheeks, giving her a healthy look, and her gloves, one of which she holds in her right hand, while the other is dressed are of an even lighter white. As such, she contrasts very sharply with both her dark clothes and dark background. The cut of the clothes is very refined and somehow innovative for the time.
That last aspect shines some light on the reasons behind not only what enabled her to commission a portrait from Modigliani, but also behind the artist taking the job, beyond simple subsistence, which seems not to have been a great concern of his. Instead, she is portrayed as a wealthy and tasteful woman, which in and of itself might have been the very reason why Modigliani would accept to paint her. Still, there is very little known about this famous anonymous and the reasons behind the bohemian Modigliani accepting to paint her.
