Quite often we can find artists who dedicate many their works to a particular subject matter, be it out of aesthetic preferences or just because of a deep personal connection. A very select few can be said to have been closer to their muse than the Italian modernist Amedeo Modigliani. The inspiration in question was Jeanne Hébuterne, the nineteen-year-old French artist who was introduced to him in the spring of 1917 by a common acquaintance, Chana Orloff, a Russian sculptor who traveled in the same circles as him in the Parisian art scene. Jeanne had previously served as a model to a fellow expat artist, the Japanese Tsuguharu Foujita, as was herself taking the first steps in the art world.
From the moment they met their connection was incredibly strong, and meeting Jeanne sent Modigliani into a frenzy of productivity, during which he produced over twenty-five portraits of his new paramour over the next few years. Coming from a very conservative family, Miss Hébuterne was renounced by her devout Catholic parents for becoming involved with the Italian Jewish artist, which did not stop her from becoming his common-law wife and having his child. They were soon engaged, but their plans of marriage were destroyed by Modigliani’s illness, which would eventually claim his life and, indirectly, Jeanne’s, who flung herself out of a window in grief after the death of her beloved, killing herself and her unborn second child with the artist.
This oil on canvas, painted in 1917, was one of the first portraits of Jeanne produced by Modigliani. Now in possession of private collectors, it portrays the young woman in a narrow-brimmed hat under which her long hair is tucked, a very fashionable accessory for the time, and an exquisite necklace. Her eyes are rendered in a light shade of blue, and carry much of the canvas’ poignant force of character, looking straight into the observer’s soul with a mixture of curiosity and seductiveness.
One exciting aspect of Modigliani’s portraits of Jeanne Hébuterne is to note how her appearance changes with time, from a seductive modern woman to an almost inscrutable and timeless Cycladean sculpture, as if the artist spent a great deal of effort in depicting her not as she appeared to others, but instead translating his feelings about her to the canvas.
