Modigliani – The future of art is in a woman’s face

I saw a great movie about the life of Amedeo Modigliani last night, the movie depicts the story of Modigliani and his bitter rivalry with Pablo Picasso, and his tragic romance with Jeanne Hebuterne.

Modigliani is portrayed by Andy Garcia who is wonderful and gives so much of his passion to the screen, similar to the passion we see in the portraits of the Italian artist.
I found the movie enthralling and captivating.

In the movie there are a couple of very interesting scene including this one that depicts a meeting between Modigliani, Picasso and Renoir…

Modigliani loved women and painted women all the time, the recurring theme of his art (according to the movie) is that “the future of art is in a woman’s face.” I think that’s just beautiful…

If you are a fan of art and of that period in art history, you should definitely check this movie out.
