“The Senate exhibition is the largest ever held on Modigliani, a unique opportunity for the general public to admire the very essential portraits painted by the artist in the last months of his life. It reveals a true expressionist genius, a tormented, sad painter, mainly using matter and reference to sculpture –his favorite medium”.
“A hundred paintings, more than a third of which have never been exhibited in France, are assembled: the most famous portraits of Zborowski; Paul Guillaume, Beatrice Hastings and Jeanne Hébuterne, or his friends, Soutine, Kisling, Chéron, Max Jacob, etc. A series of unrecognized drawings and sculptures attest to other essential aspects of Modigliani”.
Modigliani died of lung disease in the early days of 1920; the next day, his companion, Jeanne Hébuterne, a few months pregnant and desperate, jumped out of the window of the sixth floor of the building she lived: one of the darkest artistic legends of the century was born.
