"Modigliani Hébuterne, The Tragic Couple" Exhibition
This event has ended.
Amedeo Modigliani, one of the representative artists of the School of Paris, met a talented art student, Jeanne Hébuterne, when he was 32 and she was 18. They started living together, but his health worsened rapidly and he died at the age of 35. Two days after his death, Hébuterne, pregnant with their second child, threw herself out of a window in her parents’ apartment, putting an untimely end to a love affair that had lasted for three years.
The central part of this exhibition is the collection of paintings that Hébuterne’s family kept from the public for many decades. Besides oils, aquarelles and drawings by both Modigliani and Hébuterne, it also features a collection of photographs and letters, which will allow you to follow their relationship from the first blossoming of their love to its tragic end.
