Modigliani Mushrooms

It appears the stock of Sephardic
Italian painter and sculptor
AMEDEO MODIGLIANI is on the
upswing.
Modigliani, one of the great masters
of early modern art, died in 1920 at
age 35. He became and has remained
very popular with the general public,
but art critics of the
last generation have
tended to downgrade
him.
His place in the art
world, however, is
apparently looking
up. In the next few
years, a veritable
Modigliani feast will
be offered to art
lovers.
Currently at the
L.A. County
Museum of Art is the
exhibit "Modigliani
& the Artists of
Montparnasse," a
show consisting of 54
paintings, drawings
and sculptures by
Amedeo
Modigliani and an
Modigliani
additional 22 works
by his contempo-
raries. It runs
through Sept. 28.
Another major exhibit just closed in
Paris.
Finally, the Jewish Museum in New
York plans an exhibit concentrating
on the artist's Italian Jewish back-
ground. The 60-piece show will run
May 21-Sept. 19, 2004.
But, there's more. Amedeo will hit
the big screen in two films. A feature
film about his life, starring Andy
Garcia, just went into production in
Florida, and an Italian bio-pic is in
the planning stages.
Modigliani's life, as any biography
will tell you, was colorful enough for
several films, and his extended family
also offers up some interesting charac-
ters.
There's his brother, VITTORIO, a

Nate Bloom is the Oakland, Calif,-
based editor ofwww.Jewhoo.com

founder of the Italian Socialist party
and a strong early supporter of
Zionism, and his distant cousin,
FRANCO MODIGLIANI, a Nobel
Prize winner in economics who fled
Mussolini's anti-Semitic laws and set-
tled in America.

Liev Levitates Up

Actor LIEV SCHREIBER, 35, may
never be a major star. However, he is
moving up the ranks in Hollywood
and is establishing
himself as an impor-
tant actor who gets a
lot of very good
parts.
Schreiber has
starred in such films
as Kate and Leopold
Scream, and A Walk
on the Moon, an
excellent film about
a Jewish couple set
in the late 1960s.
Schreiber may
have his big break-
out role as the co-
star of a remake of
the classic 1962
thriller The

Manchurian
Candidate.
It begins produc-
tion next year and
co-stars Meryl Streep
as Schreiber's moth-
er. Schreiber plays a
soldier captured and
brainwashed by ter-
Liev Schreiber rorists during the
Persian Gulf War.
Oscar-winner
Jonathan Demme directs.
Schreiber, who is Jewish on his
mother's side, says that he considers
himself Jewish.
Interestingly, Schreiber bought up
the film rights to JONATHAN
SAFRAN FOER's Everything is
Illuminated the 2002 award-winning
novel about a young American Jew's
travels to the Ukraine in search of the
woman who saved his grandfather
from the Nazis.
Schreiber says he is currently work-
ing on a screenplay adaptation. Foer
and Schreiber met at a book festival
and have become buddies. ❑
