There's an article in G2 today about Modigliani's nudes (his 'Reclining Nude' is below).

My initial instinct was to read the article but one sentence jumped out at me and it is so pure in it's poetic brilliance that I won't read on, lest the rest does not meet this impossibly high standard.

"His black pubic patches are as neatly topiarised as Hercule Poirot's moustache"
