7. Amadeo Modigliani (1884-1920)
http://www.expo-modigliani.com/index.cfm

Presented by Expo-shop.com, this Web site is a virtual museum that
offers
approximately 100 works by the Italian painter and sculptor, Amadeo
Modigliani. Captivated by African masks and primitivism, Modigliani is
best
known for his ability to master "simplicity and grace in his shapes,
using
delicate colors and distortion of the body to highlight his models'
personalities." The Modigliani database is searchable by keyword in
English
or French, or browseable by theme, year, or technique. Also included on
the
site is a brief biography and a list of permanent exhibition sites where
Modigliani's works are housed. In addition, viewers have the opportunity
to
select one of their favorite paintings and send a personalized e-card to
a
friend or relative. The great part about the site is that it provides
links
to other Expo-shop.com museums including Degas (1834-1917), Cezanne
(1839-
1906), Monet (1840-1926), Renoir (1841-1919), Gauguin (1848-1903), Van
Gogh
(1853-1890), Klimt (1862-1918), and Magritte (1898-1967). Users should
also
note that Expo-shop.com is a commercial site that offers an online
shopping
experience for art lovers and enthusiasts. [MG]
