A scintillating account of the Italian painter’s short, anarchic existence, published in time for a major exhibition of the artist The life of the painter Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) was chaotic and tragically brief. This evocative novel captures the full essence of his Bohemian lifestyle. His lover Jeanne Hebuterne, the prostitutes who were his occasional models, and other colourful visitors come and go through his Paris studio. Spanning the turbulent last months of Modigliani’s life, conjuring up the strange workings of the painter’s troubled and often drug-fuelled mind and its expression in his paintings, this novel conveys something of the intense artistic life of Paris in the first decades of the twentieth century.
