This is one of several portraits of Anna Zborowska painted by Modigliani. Anna was the wife of the artist’s dealer, Leopold Zborowski. The artist’s aim, to depict the living human form by using the most economical means, can be seen in the simplicity of this portrait with its mask-like face and black eyes.
