    Simply known as Modigliani or “Modi,” this Italian artist lived and did his most memorable work in Paris in the early 1900s. His life was short: only 35 years. He died of tubercular meningitis, pushed to the extreme by poverty, overworking and an excessive use of alcohol and drugs. He was the bohemian’s bohemian. Penniless. Yet, during his brief time, Modi produced a memorable body of work distinctly his own, heavily influenced by primitive art—particularly African sculpture and masks—and his fe Simply known as Modigliani or “Modi,” this Italian artist lived and did his most memorable work in Paris in the early 1900s. His life was short: only 35 years. He died of tubercular meningitis, pushed to the extreme by poverty, overworking and an excessive use of alcohol and drugs. He was the bohemian’s bohemian. Penniless. Yet, during his brief time, Modi produced a memorable body of work distinctly his own, heavily influenced by primitive art—particularly African sculpture and masks—and his fellow avant-garde artists: the Cubists and Fauves, especially Picasso. Modi primarily painted portraits and nudes, rendered with candor, stripped of all pretenses, and in most cases, even clothing. Therefore, his models could have been from any walk of life, who was to say? Princess or pauper. His one and only solo show, although very popular with the public was closed by the police for being indecent. Even though he worked during the liberating time of Toulouse-Lautrec and the Moulin Rouge, Modi's work was a little too honest for the authorities and did not find favor until many decades after his death. Modigliani has been a favorite of mine since college. This book was modestly priced for an art book and has a wonderful collection of his paintings, beautifully printed, many of which I had never seen before. Bravo.

    Purty pitcher, of course, but the text isn't very illuminating. Plus, the layout is sorta lame. Still, it's Modigliani... Purty pitcher, of course, but the text isn't very illuminating. Plus, the layout is sorta lame. Still, it's Modigliani...
