Achieving little recognition in his own lifetime, Amedeo Modigliani, a young expressionist artist in Paris, went on to become highly influential after his untimely death in 1920. Jeanne Hebuterne was his last companion, his ever-faithful supporter. Although a talented artist in her own right, when their romance begins Jeanne is quickly pulled into the abyss of Modigliani’s destructive ego, to tragic ends.
Written about women by a woman, to reclaim the narrative through comic art. This is a work about women in comics. A mature period drama book, full of beautiful black-and-white drawings, best read by adults.
