schema:description"Modigliani settled in Paris in 1906 and died there at the age of thirty-five. A commercial and critical failure in his lifetime, his work now seems the most accessible and appealing of the modern era. But the details of his dramatic life and tormented character remain largely unknown. This vivid biography illuminates Modigliani's Jewish-Italian background and temperament; his intellectual influences; his intense friendships with writers and painters; his relations with the most important women in his life; his addiction to absinthe, ether and hashish; his self-destructive impulse; the lifelong tuberculosis that finally killed him; the meaning of his poetry; the significance of his innovative sculpture, portraits and nudes; and his posthumous legend.-Jacket."@en
