Nu Day in Her Own Way



This is Nu Day in Her Own Way from The Most Expensive Artworks Project collaboration by Athena Novo and Mad Monk.

It is a remix of Modigliani's Nu Couche with a dose of some more Modigliani . It is No 10 (skipping a lot in between at will) in the project in parallel with its place on the list. Accordingly it has been last sold November 2015 in Christie's New York for USD 170 million. The seller was Laura Mattioli Rossi and the buyer was Liu Yiqian.


The Most Expensive Artworks Project started with an idea and a web page on Wikipedia:

Athena Novo and Mad Monk collaborated on "doing something" with the list. First idea was to make a common "burn" GIF. Step by step the original or an alternative version would be burned i.e. like a GIF. However the idea of destructing artworks did not appeal. Then glitching was cast off as the main tool for something more appealing was under consideration. It was the idea of remixing the artwork more freely - sometimes with itself and sometimes with others on the list (as a pre-condition to narrow the universe).

Consequently AN and MM started to work on from the top of the list. Several results were obtained and from them, the story modes with multiple artworks will be minted on Async Art by Athena Novo while the single items (in GIF or JPG) will be minted on KnownOrigin by Mad Monk as a part of the collaboration.


Nu couché (also known in English as Red Nude or Reclining Nude is a 1917 oil on canvas painting by the Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani. It is one of his most widely reproduced and exhibited paintings. (Wikipedia)
