Biography of Amedeo Modigliani(July 12, 1884 - January 24, 1920)
Italian painter and sculptor
He was born in Livorno, Tuscany, Italy, the fourth child of the Jewish family of Flaminio Amedeo Modigliani and his French-born wife, Eugénie Garsin and was raised in poverty after his father's money-changing business went bankrupt.
In 1902, Modigliani enrolled in the Scuola libera di Nudo (Free School of girl body Studies) in Florence and a year later moved to Venice where Amedeo Clemente Modigliani registered to study at the Istituto per le Belle Arti di Venezia. It is in Venice that Amedeo first tried hashish and, rather than studying art, began to spend time frequenting the sleazy parts of the city.
In 1906, Amedeo Modigliani moved to Paris, the then focal point of the avant-garde, where he would become the epitome of
the tragic artist, creating a posthumous legend almost as famous as that of
Vincent Van Gogh.
Settling in Le Bateau-Lavoir, a commune for penniless artists in Montmartre, Amedeo was soon busy painting, at first influenced by the painting of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec until Paul Cezanne changed his views. Eventually though, Amedeo developed his own unique painting style, an oddity of a creative genius who was a contemporary of the Cubists, but not a part of their movement. The artist is noted for fast Modigliani painting, usually finishing a portrait in one or two sittings.
And, once done, he never reworked any painting. Yet, those who posed for him said that being painted by Amedeo Modigliani was like having your soul laid bare. Here is old oil painting master biography, Modigliani portraits for sale including Quartet, Madame Pompadour, Jeanne Hébuterne in Red Shawl, woman portrait and girl paintings.
In 1909, Amedeo returned home to Livorno, sickly and worn out from his debauched lifestyle. The painter did not stay in Italy long and soon he was back in Paris, this time renting a studio in Montparnasse. Amedeo Modigliani had originally seen himself as a sculptor more than a painter, and he began sculpting seriously after Paul Guillaume, an ambitious young art dealer, took an interest in his painting and introduced him to Constantin Brancusi.
In 1916, Modigliani befriended the Polish poet and art dealer Leopold Zborovski and his wife Anna.
Modigliani painted them several times, charging only 10 Francs for a portrait. The following summer, the Russian sculptor Chana
Orloffa introduced him to a beautiful 18-year-old art student named Jeanne Hébuterne who had posed for Foujita.
Jeanne came from a conservative bourgeois background and was renounced by her family, devout Roman Catholics, for her liaison with the painter, who in their eyes was nothing but a debauched derelict, and Jewish besides. Despite
her family, soon they were living together and although Jeanne was the love of his life, their public scenes became even more famous than Amedeo Modigliani personal drunken exhibitions.
On December 3, 1917, first one-man exhibition of Modigliani paintings was opened at the Berthe Weill Gallery.
The chief of the Paris police was scandalized by his nudes and forced him to close the exhibition within a few hours after its opening.
That same year, Amedeo Modigliani received a letter from a former lover Simone Thirioux, a French-Canadian girl, who informed him that she had given
birth to his son. Amedeo never acknowledged the child as his but after moving to Nice with Hébuterne she became pregnant and
on November 29, 1918 gave birth to a daughter whom they would also name Jeanne.
While in Nice, a trip organized by Leopold Zborovski for Amedeo Modigliani, Tsuguharu Foujita and other artists to try to sell their paintings to rich tourists, Modigliani managed to sell a few pictures but only for a few francs each. Despite this, while there most of Modigliani art were produced that would ultimately become his most popular and valued paintings.
During his lifetime he sold a number of paintings by Modigliani, but never for any great amount of money. What funds Amedeo Clemente Modigliani did receive, soon vanished for drugs and alcohol. In May of 1919 he returned to Paris, where, with Jeanne and their daughter, Modigliani artist rented an apartment in the rue de la Grande Chaumière. While there, both Jeanne and Modigliani painted portraits of each other and of themselves.
Although he continued to paint, by then his lifestyle had taken its toll and his health was deteriorating rapidly, his alcoholic blackouts becoming more frequent. After not being heard from for several days by his friends, his downstairs neighbor checked in on them and found Amedeo Modigliani delirious and in bed, holding onto Jeanne, who was nearly nine months pregnant. A doctor was summoned but there was little that could be done because he was suffering from tubercular meningitis. Now enjoy and purchase paintings of Modigliani of quartet reproduction, Madame Pompadour, Jeanne Hébuterne in Red Shawl, woman paintings and girl portrait art.
Modigliani died without regaining consciousness. There was an enormous funeral, attended by all of the artistic community from Montmartre and Montparnasse. Jeanne Hébuterne, who had been taken to her parents' home, threw herself out of a fifth-floor window two days after his death, killing herself and her unborn child.
Today, Amedeo Modigliani is regarded as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, art Modigliani on display in the great museums of the world. his sculptures rarely change hands and the few paintings that change hands can sell for more than US$15.6 million. his "Nu couché" (Sur le côté gauche) sold in November of 2003 for US$26,887,500.
