Amadeo Modigliani (1884-1920) was a native of Livorno, Italy. He attended art schools in Florence and Venice, including at the Regio Istituto di Belle Arti. At age 21, Modigliani relocated to Paris, where he studied under Brancusi, as well as at the Académie Colarossi. His art centered on the human figure in African sculpture. His signature style for such works included exaggerated oval eyes, elongated necks and flat scooping noses. Modigliani's works have been exhibited at the Salon d'Automn, as well as at the Salon des Indépendants. In 1920, Modigliani died from tubercular meningitis at the age of 36. His wife, at the time, Jeanne, devastated by the loss of her husband, jumped from a 5th floor window, plummeting to her death, despite the fact that she was pregnant with Modigliani's second child.
