Modigliani
Important Chapter'
In ArtHI-
. story

An important 'chapter -in the
history of world art was written
on Nov. 14 at'Sotheby's in New
. York, the famous . at dealing
center. Packed with art connois-
seurs, the occasion witnessed
the sale of the famous' Amedeo
Modigliani painting, The
Dreamer, of "a wistful woman
portrayed Against' a dark back-
ground."
New York Times art critic
Rita Reif refers to it as a 1917-
1918 version of "the only hori-
zontal image ever painted by an
Italian artist." -
Worldwide interest ,has been
aroused in this painting de-'
scribed. as "one of about 22 re-
clining versions" painted by
Modigliani. Fewer than six are
in private hands.
The painting was sold for
$4,620,000 to an unidentified
American buyer. There were
more than 1,000 bidders and
watchers during the sale. It
marked. the highest' price paid
for any art work in .tie auction,
in which 60 of Wart works on
sale netted $30 million.
The sensational sale calls- at-
tention to the Italian Jewish ar-
tist who had a tragic life which .
ended at the early- age of. 36.
Both Enclyclopedia Judaica
and
Universal Jewish
Encyclopedia describe Modig-
liani's life and his rise to fame
with fascination. They indicate
the style which drew world
acclaim for the artist who grew
to great eminence.
An introduttory to his life .
story in Universal Jewish
Encyclopedia, by art authority
M. Donald White, provides the
facts about Modigliani's' Jewish
origin:
MODIGLIANA1 AMEDEO,
artist, b. Livorno, Italy, 1884,
d. Paris, 1920., Although his
career was tiagically cut
short at the age of 36, he has
left an imperishable mark on
the art of the. 20th Century.
Incidentally, he has become
the hero of the last great
romantic legend , of "bohe-
mian" Paris.
Modigliani was descended .
from two distinguished
Jewish families. His father's
forebears were bankers to
the cardinals in Rome. his
mother of theGarsino
traced her 'descent from
Spinoza. His brother, Em-
manuele, was a socialist de-
puty until after the rise. of
Mussolini.
In 1906, after two years'
study in Venice and in Flor-
ence, his mother made it
possible for Modigliiini to
open a studio in Paris. Set.'
fled • in Monbriartre, he made
frienaii and exchanged
ideas with men of revolution-
ary artistic ' ideas 'such as
Picasso, Max 4Ittt;ob, Derain,
Vlaminck andlliiillo all of
whom at that (time were'liv
ing penniless misery.
Sculpture was ever to be
Modigliani's chief love; but
the' bad effects of stone dust
on his weak lungs'forced him
to abandon; it.,in faVor of
painting.
