Maverick Modigliani Overview

To mark the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Modigliani's death, this documentary explores the life and work of Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920), an avant-garde painter who became a classic contemporary artist loved and imitated all over the world. Born in Livorno, Tuscany, Dedo or Modi`, lived a short, tormented life, narrated here from an original point of view, that of his young common-law wife, Jeanne He´buterne who committed suicide two days after his death. Jeanne, together with the Russian aspiring poetess Anna Achmatova, and the English journalist Beatrice Hastings were the women he painted portraits of, and whose faces, almost caryatid-like, became the very icons of his art. The action of the film unwinds through museum halls, enriched by the works of the Albertina in Vienna and the splendid exhibition dedicated to the artist at Livorno’s City Museum, as well as the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the great museums and art collections in Paris.
