Pennellata dà la sensazione di ualcosa di definitivo uasi ineluttabile e rivela la presenza di una sensibilità complessa che il mito da solo non può spiegare è andata alla ricerca di un Modigliani sottotraccia per molti versi sconosciuto L'autrice ripercorre le tappe salienti della sua vita descrivendo l'ambiente familiare d'origine economicamente modesto ma colto e raffinato gli anni di tirocinio a Livorno e Venezia le suggestioni artistiche che più lo influenzarono da Botticelli a Van Gogh da Cézanne e Brancusi alle sculture primitive dell'Africa e dell'Oceania E soprattutto racconta di uell'evento che segnò per sempre la sua esistenza la tubercolosi contratta da adolescente e a causa della uale rischiò più volte di morire uesta malattia considerata all'epoca un'onta sociale e per cui non esistevano cure efficaci fu il segreto che Modigliani custodì gelosamente e che condizionò ogni suo comportamento.

Meryle Secrest ò 0 Summary

ModiglianiLa sua arte e la sua visione del mondo intrise di fatalismo e idealismo In realtà l'abuso di alcol e laudano sostiene la Secrest non è legato al suo temperamento o a un atteggiamento anticonformista ma al tentativo disperato di lenire e mascherare i sintomi del morbo Si delinea così l'immagine di un Modigliani inedito timido e fragile che mise a dura prova se stesso per portare a termine il proprio lavoro creativo nonostante la povertà e i patimenti Intorno a lui lo scenario impareggiabile della Parigi dei primi del Novecento dove si trasferì poco più che ventenne e rimase fino alla morte una città di straordina rio fermento e dinamismo in cui confluirono artisti di ogni paese per rivoluzionare l'idea di arte Rigorosamente documentata e riccamente illustrata uesta biografia ci restituisce la storia veritiera di un genio a lungo incompreso svelandoci nel contempo le radici più profonde dei suoi capolavori.

    Modigliani Summary ☆ 100 ModiglianiSometimes the stars method of rating books doesn't uite make sense As described by hovering the mouse they are classifications that describe various levels of 'like' Did didn't really did did a lot Sometimes that is the most important thing about a book and we'd 'like' to think that if we approved that the book must ergo be a good book Sometimes though verifiably good is valuable than liked there are gaps between good and liked Modigliani What I SeeThere is no significant light source in a Modigliani portrait There are no beams or motes of dust caught in shafts from window or lamp or the heavens; this is not to say there is no light Similarly there is no significant meaning no overriding event or drama that shapes the content or execution because it is nearly always the same content and similar execution Elegant line drawings render well massed re imaginings of the human figure generally relying on simplification elongati

    Modigliani Summary ☆ 100 ModiglianiThe Tragedy of ModiglianiMeryle Sechrist has proven her merits as a biographer in her books on Frank Lloyd Wright Kenneth Clark Bernard Berenson and Leonard Bernstein and she has always shown a penchant for cleansing the facade of famous people and examining their lives in context with the times in which they lived and worked

    Modigliani Summary ☆ 100 ModiglianiSometimes you decide to read a book just because you don't know anything about the subject That's the case with this one I had read one biography by Meryle Secrest of Richard Rodgers and I liked it But I had an interest in Rodgers to start with In Modigliani's case all I knew was that he did paintings of long necked women with almond sh

    Modigliani Summary ☆ 100 ModiglianiI found this book very well written and the subject fascinating It was carefully researched and thoughtfully presented I came to it initially after seeing a rather bad movie on the artist which piued my curiosity mainly because nothing and no one can make Modigliani boring I was also taken with Jeanne Hebuterne his last mistress who died at 22 and wanted to learn about her I intend to do research on her but this book did fill in many gaps Secrest's m

    Modigliani Summary ☆ 100 ModiglianiA good insight into Modigliani's miserable life Crummy childhood beset by Pleurisy Scarlet Fever Cholera and TB Then he lives the bohemian life in Paris finding his simple line but mostly drinking to hide his consumption TB is highly contagious and people were very paranoid about anyone with a bad cough The author has written 10 biographies so she knows what she's doing but she gives us details than you'd ever care to know Her task to debunk the many myths about Modigliani's drinking and drugs is all the difficult when there are so many friends who spread the myths She also was denied any help or documents from Modigliani's common law wife and mother of their child Jeanne Not a great book unless you're into early 20th century artists

    Modigliani Summary ☆ 100 ModiglianiThis was a thoughtful sensitively balanced exploration of the life of Amedeo Modigliani While obvious that Secrest is an admirer of the artist and his work the book never descends into idle hero worship or fan over praising Above all I most appreciated Secrest’s bravery in tackling the myths about Modigliani’s reputation as a d
