One artist, many myths
Amedeo Modigliani, or "Modi" as his friends called him, was considered to be "The Last Bohemian from Montmartre." Born in Italy in 1884, he moved to Paris in 1906, where he quickly led an extravagant life. Picasso, Matisse and Cezanne were among his greatest artistic influences. Modigliani was photographed in his Parisian studio (above) by Paul Guillaume in 1915.
