Red Nude or Reclining Nude, is an oil on canvas of 1917 painted by the Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani.
The painting was sold $170 405 000 at Christie's in New York on 9th November 2015, a record for a Modigliani painting, which places it among the most expensive paintings ever sold. The buyer is Chinese businessman Liu
The painting is part of a famous series of nudes that Modigliani painted in 1917 on behalf of the Polish art dealer Leopold Zborowski. It is believed that it was included in the first and only art exhibition of Modigliani in 1917, at Berthe Weill Gallery, closed by the police. On the other hand, Christie's notes related to the sale of this lot indicate that this series of nudes by Modigliani has served to reaffirm and revive the nude as a subject of modern art

Amedeo Clemente Modigliani, born 12th July 1884 in Livorno (Italy) and died on 24th January 1920 in Paris (France), is an Italian figurative painter and sculptor of the School of Paris.
Initially considering himself as a sculptor, it was only from 1914 on, that he devoted himself exclusively to the drawing and the painting of portraits and nudes. His works, with stretched forms and faces without looking like masks, remain emblematic of the modern art of this era. He died prematurely, sick and alcoholic; the next day, his companion, Jeanne Hébuterne, nine months pregnant, commits suicide.
His brief career left a work with unique aesthetics which was not understood by his contemporaries, but which received a success after his death, strengthened by the myth of the young cursed artist.
The number of transactions of Modigliani's works is relatively small. Paintings and sculptures represent about 15% of these lots. The watercolours and pencils of this prolific draughtsman make up 60% of the auctions. These are regularly auctioned between €10,000.- and €100,000.- We only list about thirty sculptures and four hundred oils. The most sought-after works are those from 1906 to 1920, during which time he almost exclusively devoted himself to the portrait. Modigliani had the intuition that he had found his "identity" with these works. The works from 1910 to 1913 are the rarest. Today, his most expensive canvas is still an oil from 1917, “Nu assis sur un divan”
