Painting Jeanne - Modigliani's Studio France 1917 Interior Painting by k Madison Moore

Painting Jeanne 
 Modigliani’s Studio France 1917
Inspired by Amedeo Modigliani

Painting with The Masters
Masters Studios Series
14 x 18  Modigliani Oil Painting on Canvas


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.
