Modigliani Month

The back-story of Modigliani is what attracted me to the artist, a true bohemian in every sense. Modigliani studied the classics, but always went his own way. The melodic lines he paints on his portraiture figures are so precise, enabling him to capture precisely his sitters’ melancholic moods and emotions. A Modigliani is so enjoyable to recreate that I couldn’t help but paint three pieces! They are: Jeanne Hebuterne with the blue necklace – Hebuterne was Modigliani’s lover, who, tragically, took her own life two days after Modigliani died by walking backwards out of the fifth-floor apartment window killing herself and her unborn child.
