Modigiliani- Jeanne Hebuterne with a big Straw hat
Two years before his death Amadeo painted a portrait of his 21 year old Jeanne. He had lived togather with this fair-skinned, auburn-haired young artist since 1916. Jeanne's portrait with a big straw hat is considered to be the most beautiful of the 16 portraits he has painted of her. With his typical use of colours, inspired by Byzantine art, he paints a modest friendly Jeanne in geometric forms.
