Expressionism, The Artist's Timeline

The Artist’s Timeline: Amedeo Modigliani

Modigliani-Jeane-HébuterneAmedeo Modigliani was born July 12, 1884 in Tuscany, Italy, and died tragically at the age of 35, on January 24, 1920 in Paris France. Modigliani was an expressionist painter, deeply inspired by Picasso’s African Period. He is mostly recognised for his portraiture and his nudes, but is known too for his relationship with the very beautiful French Artist, Jeanne Hébuterne, with whom he had a daughter, and who joined him in death January 26, 1920.
