Jeannes Blue Shoes Chair Painting - Modigliani by k Madison Moore

Jeanne’s Blue Shoes
Inspired by Modigliani

Miniature Paintings - Chairs Series
6 x 8 Chair Oil Painting on Canvas


I have been wanting to do a series of small paintings of chairs so here is the first of my
Chairs Series. I decided to start with a few based on The Masters that  I had in mind. I never get tired of panting with Modigliani, especially his portraits of Jeanne. It seems that they are all so different and she never looks the same in any two. This on is one of my favorites of Jeanne. I guess I picture Jeanne in high button blue shoes. I have no idea why, accept that I lie it, lol!

Jeanne Hebuterne  (6 April 1898 – 25 January 1920) was a French artist, best known as the frequent subject and common- law wife of the artist  Amedeo Modigliani.
gentle, shy, quiet, and delicate, Jeanne Hébuterne became a principal subject for Modigliani's art. 
If you have never read the story or haven’t seen the movie it is a wonderful love story starring Andy Garcia. Definitely one of my favorites.
