A massive wall mounted triptych in the style of Amadeo Modigliani with a striking representation of five beautiful young women in tones of grey on a rich yellow background and an overall crackle glaze.
The central panel is huge measuring 18.75 by 16.25 inches and each of the side panels are large in their own right, measuring 16.25 by 6.25 inches each.
The signature on the front is illegible and they're stamped Italy on the back. Of all the thousands and thousands of pieces of beautiful post war Italian ceramics we have sold since opening our doors in 1997, these ladies are my all time favorites.
