I don't think I will ever paint Modi and Jeanne enough. I love the story. I love the art.
In 2000 there were many photos, stories released about Modi and Jeanne, as well as over 200 paintings by Jeanne. They were entrusted to a family friend who promised Jeanne Modigliani, their daughter, that he would follow her wishes and not release them until then which was 16 years after her death.
I found so many wonderful reference photos that I had not seen before. The first two hanging in the back ground are a "Self" Portrait of Modi and a portrait of Jeanne by Modi.
The other two are a "Self" Portrait and a portrait of Modi painted by Jeanne. Modi in the foreground is a scene that I remembered from the movie when Modi smoking a cigarette after finishing this portrait of Jeanne. The cabin rustic interior makes a great studio environment.
Always fun painting Modi and his life and more to come for my collectors and fans.
