Jeune fille brune
Jeanne Hébuterne was the wife of the Expressionist painter Amadeo Modigliani
. They met when she was 19 years old. She loved him despite his addiction to alcohol and drugs. Modigliani contracted tuberculosis and died in 1920 at the age of 36. His devoted wife loved him so dearly that she could no longer live without him and committed suicide the day after her husband's death. They were buried in a common grave. She died before her 22nd birthday. Modigliani naturally dedicated many of his portraits to them.
Prevailing color of this fine art print is dark and its shape is portrait. Original size is .Amadeo Modigliani (1884-1920).
He lived a short life and created relatively few works. His painting style is a blend of Cubism,
Trecento and Quattrocento and was formed quite slowly. He painted almost solely figures, nudes and portraits, in a very stylized and subtle style. Most significant in his paintings at the sharp lines forming the clear contours and separating large coloured areas from each other (ochre, orange, blue, white and black). Modigliani’s style is distinctive, elegant, but in a certain way also melancholy and sad
(perhaps it stemmed from his poor health, which was a result of his disorderly lifestyle and problems with alcohol and drugs). His untimely death was followed by the suicide of his wife and thus brought to an end the typical life of a bohemian genius painter. Modigliani devoted a substantial part of his work to female nudes
and the more he painted, the more ingenious they became. Among these is the Red nude
