Jean Cocteau - Amedeo Modigliani

Created in the studio of Moïse Kisling, this work by Amedeo Modigliani representing Jean Cocteau is one of the artist's key works. The positioning of the hyper-worldly writer is reminiscent of the portrait of Charles VII exhibited in the Louvre: a tad conceited and contradictory with his oversized hands and shoulder pads that attempt to enlarge his bust.

L'œuvre en bref

Created in the studio of Moïse Kisling, this work by Amedeo Modigliani representing Jean Cocteau is one of the artist's key works. The positioning of the hyper-worldly writer is reminiscent of the portrait of Charles VII exhibited in the Louvre: a tad conceited and contradictory with his oversized hands and shoulder pads that attempt to enlarge his bust.

The artist

Born in Livorno, Italy, Amedeo Modigliani (1884 - 1920) took drawing lessons from the painter Guglielmo Micheli in 1898. After studying at the Institute of Fine Arts in Florence, he moved to Paris in 1906 and enrolled at the Academy Colarossi. He soon joined the artists' circles of Montmartre, those of the Bateau-Lavoir in particular, such as Picasso or Rivera. In 1907, Modigliani became interested in the works of Toulouse-Lautrec and also discovered African art through his meeting with the sculptor Brancusi. He exhibited several times at the Salon des Indépendants and the Salon d'Automne, but in 1917, his works caused a scandal at the Galerie Berthe Weill. Judged indecent, his paintings were taken down by the police. He ended his life in Nice, under the Mediterranean light, which lightened his color palette somewhat and where he painted the only four landscapes of his career.
