“Modigliani reduced us all to….the vision within him…whereby he portrays his own image—not the physical appearance but the mysterious lineaments of his genius.”* Jean Cocteau (who can be viewed below)
*Quote of Jean Cocteau about Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) is from The Eye of Duncan Phillips: A Collection in the Making, authored by several art historians, The Phillips Collection in association with Yale University Press, 1999, Washington, D.C.
