(After) Amadeo MODIGLIANI (1883- 1920, Italy) “THE ARTIST’S WIFE”. This limited edition (113/375) giclée print is facsimile signed. It measures 12.5 x 8 inches (image); 16 x 10 inches (sheet); and with double mat and wood frame the measurements are 25.5 x 19.5 inches. Modigliani painted some 20 portraits of his wife (Jeanne Huberterne.) Characterized by her almond-shaped slate gray eyes (the same color as the wall behind her), Jeanne has the elongated face, wistful expression, tilted head, and contours that are typical of Modigliani portraits. This image was created as an oil on canvas in 1918 and is now in the Norton Simon Collection, Pasadena, CA. It is captioned as follows: "This work depicts Jeanne Hebuterne, wife of the artist, whom he met in 1917. Modigliani died of tubercular meningitis in 1920. Despondent over his death, Jeanne committed suicide the following morning. She was nine months pregnant with their second child."
