Inspired by Amedeo Modigliani
Painting with The Masters

14 x 18 Oil Painting on Canvas
I have done several paintings of Jeanne inspired by Modi
and I love every one of them. Jeanne has so many expressions
in the paintings he did of her. The one over the fireplace was painted
before he started painting her eyes. He used to leave the centers blank.
He told Jeanne that the day he painted her eyes is the day he will be
able to see her soul. I decided to paint them in for this composition.
I keep finding more and more paintings of Jeanne that Modi painted.
This one of her on the sofa was a new one that I recently found
and made me realize how different she looked in several of'
his paintings, hence the title, "Expressions of Jeanne."
If you haven't seen the movie, "Modi", the life story of
Amedeo Modigliani, then see it. You won't regret it.
It was a wonderful movie about his life and the lives of
Picasso and several other artists during that time and the
way they competed in the salons with their art. It is a love
story about Modi and his love Jeanne Hebuterne.
