" I made the certificate after submitting the work to convincing scientific criteria.
Extracts of pigments showed that they contained a particular physical component, characteristic of the corresponding period of A. Modigliani...
a forger couldn't know such a detail"

In the painting documents they inform the portrayed is Noel Alexandre, son of Paul Alexandre and because of the divorce of their parents Modigliani did two copies
one for each parent.

Probably this other painting may be a sketch for the larger composition or copies made by the author as some experts suggest?

Detail of signature:

signature

The signature of the painting is absolutely anomalous, it is made in black oil. The "m" is painted in two strokes, the "o" is aalone, the "d" is alone,
the "g" is painted in a singular way, non balanced and with a very linear body, the "a" joins to the "n" in upper side (something that Restellini say is not possible and that he has never seen this feature in Modigliani's work)
The linearity of the signature is almost complete in design with a light curve in the center , but of course this does not means nothing, only old fashion art historians/connosieurs would
dare to say it's fake based on this stupid and pointless dissertation, a total nonsense.

Signatures in Modigliani have no rules and to say that there are is like saying he signed with a stamp...

Both portraits one on top of the other to show the lines and how one painting is almost an exact copy of the other.
On top the Guggenheim work and on the back the private collection one:

ears


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Detail of the ears where the drawing in black line is clearly visible and is detailed in color

ears


Curiosity:
Marc Restellini extract from a report by him will give a deeper comprehension of the private expert way of working:

marcrestellini

Translation:
The ears: When they are left exposed in female portraits (rare), they are not detailed. Even in the portraits of men, they are not the object of so much detail.

Exactly the opposite to this case, the ears are full in details, as detailed as the eyes or the hair...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE:

For the Guggenheim collection and the big portrait:
Marc Restellini has suggested that he might be a member of the family of Dr. Raymond-Jacques Sabouraud (1864-1938), Modigliani's first known landlord in the south of France and the earliest
recorded owner of the bust-length portrait of the same sitter former in the Guggenheim collection.
Sabouraud was a renowned dermatologist at the Hôpital Saint-Louis in Paris, as well as an accomplished painter, sculptor, and musician.

For the actual painting;
He informs the portrayed is Noel Alexandre, son of Paul Alexandre and because of the divorce of their parents Modigliani did two copies one for each parent.
No idea why he changed the portrayed identity in this particular painting while he keep the Sabouraud identity on the others.
