amedeo modigliani 1884-1920

i adore this painter. sweetness and sorrow are so well captured in his work. in 1906 he moved from his native italy to paris. within a very short time his appearance changed from well dressed to vagabond. illness may have led to drugs and some believe that his work suffered from his lifestyle. will shall never know.

can't explain but always had an affinity for his works. modigliani and kandinsky are my two favorites.
