Modigliani Amedeo
The Italian painter and sculptor Amedeo Clemente Modigliani is born in Livorno in 1884. He becomes one of the major artists of the group that represents the School of Paris-Montparnasse (Soutine, Zadkine, Chagall, Foujita, Kisling, Pascin, etc.). Raised in poverty, he moves to Paris in 1906, more precisely in the district of Montmartre. His main influences are then Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Cezanne, Cubism, or Picasso's blue period. Known initially as a figurative painter, Modigliani becomes famous for his paintings and sculptures considered of modern compose; the faces takes the shape of masks and his forms are stretched. Thereafter, he moves to Montparnasse, but due to his poor health he is forced to abandon sculpture. Devoted to painting, Modigliani makes numerous portraits of his regulars’ entourage - for example - Juan Gris, Survage, Foujita or Jean Cocteau. His first solo exhibition is held in 1917 at the Berthe Weil Gallery; and it is suspended by order of the Prefecture who judges the nudes exhibited in the window too indecent. On the effects of tuberculous meningitis, Amedeo Modigliano is only 36 when he dies in 1920.
