I never get tired of this love affair. So sad but beautiful at the same time. I
 am happy to add Modigliani to my Masters Studio’s Series. He painted over
200 works of Jeanne in the few short years they were together. I often wonder
where they would have gone and what they would have done had Modi and Jeanne
not died so young. What a wonderful artist he was and Jeanne was up and coming.
Do you think she would have painted so many pieces of him?

Enjoy
Painting Jeanne


Modigliani depicted his mistress, Jeanne Hébuterne (1898-1920), in more than twenty works but never in the nude.

In the history of art she is accorded the honorable role of the last but not the least influential muse of Modigliani. Popular literature and cinema repeatedly used her image to give their own view of the life story of the great artist, picturing her as a young girl devoted to her husband. 

The name of Jeanne Hebuteme  is inseparable from that of Amedeo Modigliani, and the surprising and sad truth is that it was her death rather than life that tied them together forever. It is common knowledge that she committed suicide the day after Modigliani’s death and was buried in the same grave. She didn’t live to see her 22nd birthday.
