The inspiration comes from Modigliani’s 1917 painting “Blue Eyes”(portrait of Madame Jeanne Hébuteme), collected in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Modigliani was a master in painting the long necks of women. The woman in the painting “Blue eyes” was his lover, and the painting was named after her beautiful blue eyes. The vase “Blue-eyed lover” depicts a woman with empty blue eyes, reflecting the mysterious inner soul of the painter. The arc shoulders of the woman are sculpted in detail. The long neck and wedge-shaped nose show an abstract, aesthetic style.
