Modigliani, not looking well, 1919.
Here is The Modigliani Suite:
Amedeo Modigliani (July 12, 1884 – January 24, 1920) has been the subject of a couple of feature movies. Mostly, they cover his love life, which lacked no drama. I take that back - the more recent flick, Modigliani, 2004, by Director Mick Davis, is also very much about the artistic process. Critics and the public hated it, but I loved it. The metaphor of his grand premier compared to a bloody mugging in the snow is rich, and I liked the way he consulted his boyhood self from time to time.
Watching the 1958 film, Les Amants de Montparnasse, in French, is a nonsensical treat for me, since I don't understand the language. I had a couple scenes posted before, but they have vanished from YT. Try to find it sometime and enjoy. Tragically, both the first director and the star died during and shortly after the making of this movie.
Here is a You Tube of his paintings streamed to some music with an Italian title about love's consequences. I like to watch these with the digital projector on the big screen. Maybe some of his great style and visual grace will rub off on me.
