Interior Painting Still Life Inspired by Modigliani by k Madison Moore

Expressions of Jeanne
Inspired by Amedeo Modigliani

Painting with The Masters

14 x 18 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

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.

Jeanne was born in Paris to a Roman Catholic family. Her father,
 Achille Casimir Hébuterne, worked at Le Bon Marché department store.
 A beautiful girl, she was introduced to the artistic community in
 Montparnasse by her brother André Hébuterne who wanted to become a
painter  She met several of the then-starving artists and modeled for 
Tsuguharu Foujita. However, wanting to pursue a career in the arts, 
and with a talent for drawing, she chose to study at the
 Académie Colarossi. It was there in the spring of 1917
 that Jeanne Hébuterne was introduced to Amedeo Modigliani her love. 

The end will surprise you!

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."
