Amedeo Modigliani
There are only a few weeks left to visit the Musée de l'Orangerie and explore the exhibition dedicated to Amedeo Modigliani and his dealer, Paul Guillaume. This exhibition is the perfect opportunity to rediscover the works of this Italian artist who was a part of the early 20th-century Parisian artistic avant-garde.

The Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani lived a traumatic life yet produced some of the most iconic images of the early 20th century. Learn about his life and painting in this Amedeo Modigliani biography. This modern art video covers the life and work of Amedeo Modigliani who was only 35 years old when he died. Modigliani spent most of his working life in Paris and was friends with Picasso, Soutine and many other painters. He was not just a painter, but also a sculptor who worked mainly in France. He is best known for portraits and nudes in a modern style characterized by a surreal elongation of faces, necks, and figures that were not received well during his lifetime, but later became much sought-after. His true love, Jeanne Hebuterne, bore him a child but tragically committed suicide when Amedeo died.
