The passionate Italian modern painter Amedeo Modigliani in no moment hides his predilection of genre and subject matter. An accomplished portraitist, he often painted those close to him, such as his patron, the Polish poet and art dealer Léopold Zborowski and his wife Hanka, his attempted paramour Lunia Czechowska, and, more often and essential for Modigliani’s aesthetic development, his life partner Jeanne Hébuterne, the mother of his child, who stayed with him to the bitter end and beyond. He also painted hired models, a luxury usually reserved for the painting of nudes, and strangers, people he saw in bars and cafés who awakened his interest.
But it is in his paintings of people close to him, especially of Jeanne Hébuterne, that we can notice the real development in his technique and style, leading us to believe that it was in those situations where he probably felt more comfortable to attempt new things and break from the usual or instead perfect an innovation just recently added to his artistic inventory. Exemplified here, where we have but a part of a broader collection of paintings developed over the year of 1918, most of which was spent by Modigliani and Hébuterne in Nice and the rest of Southern France both because of the war as well as in an attempt of recovering Amedeo’s failing health, already afflicted by the tubercular meningitis that would claim his life.
In this 1918 oil on canvas, Modigliani portrayed his life partner, Jeanne Hébuterne, nonchalantly sitting for the artist in a rather sumptuous armchair, which the artist depicts in some detail. Now in the hands of private collectors, the painting is part of a group of work created that year where Jeanne Hébuterne is portrayed, often in the same clothes or the same position, always in relation to the chair mentioned above, leading us to believe that it must all have been part of the same sitting session, from which Modigliani produced a number of studies. It is of relevance that here we can see some of the most emblematic characteristics of Modigliani’s work: the elongated faces, necks and facial features, the empty eyes and the color palette that melds the subject matter into the background, which is represented here by the red in the model’s dress joining with the color of the wood panelling on the wall behind her.
