Born Amedeo Clemente Modigliani
12 July 1884 Livorno, Tuscany, Italy
Died 24 January 1920 (aged 35) Paris, France

From the Modigliani-Foundation,

“Modigliani died penniless and destitute-managing only one solo exhibition in his life and giving his work away in exchange for meals in restaurants.”

From Art Daily,

“The Chinese collector who bought a sensuous Modigliani nude for $170.4 million in New York is former taxi driver turned tycoon Liu Yiqian, who has founded a museum in Shanghai.”

From Christie’s,
