"What I am searching for is neither the real nor the unreal, but the Subconscious, the mystery of what is Instinctive in the human Race"
Written by Amedeo Modigliani in a 1907 sketchbook
Amedeo Clemente Modigliani (July 12, 1884 – January 24, 1920) was an Italian painter and sculptor who worked mainly in France. Primarily a figurative artist, he became known for paintings and sculptures in a modern style, characterized by mask-like faces and elongation of form. He died at age 35 in Paris of tubercular meningitis, exacerbated by poverty, overwork and addiction to alcohol and narcotics
