A sculpture signed by Amedeo Modigliani, representing a female head, was awarded the sum of EUR 43.18 million, setting a record for an opera made by the artist, at Christie’s auction house, which took place Monday in Paris.

Limestone sculpture representing a woman’s head with oval face, almond-shaped eyes, thin and long nose, small mouth and neck stretched – a typical portrait of Modigliani – was sold for 43.18 million euros, all taxes included, after an estimate of between four and six million euros, excluding taxes.

“It is a record for an opera made by Amedeo Modigliani, having regard to all categories (paintings and sculptures)”, said the Christie’s officials.

65-inch sculpture was carried out from 1910 to 1912 and was first displayed at the Salon d’Automne of 1912.

The sculpture comes from the collection of the businessman Gaston Levy (1893 – 1977), the founder of the Monoprix retail chain.
