More about this item

One well-known work of art seen on the TV show Bewitched was a painting entitled "Jeanne Hebuterne" by Amedeo Modigliani. This painting hung on the wall near the Stephens' living room window, more commonly referred to by Bewitched fans as "Aunt Clara's corner".

The painting depicts the elongated face of a woman rendered in a rather primitive style, displaying Modigliani's fondness for African and Cambodian art. The painting is actually a portrait of Modigliani's common-law wife, the French artist Jeanne Hebuterne (1898-1920), and has a rather tragic history connected to it. When Amedeo Modigliani died on January 24, 1920 from tubercular meningitis complicated by alcoholism and an addiction to hashish, Jeanne Huterne, almost nine months pregnant, fell into a deep depression. She committed suicide two days later by throwing herself out of a fifth storey window, killing not only herself but also her unborn child. Jeanne's family blamed Modigliani for her death and buried her in another cemetery, refusing to move her remains next to Modigliani's at Paris' Pere Lachaise Cemetery until ten years later. Amedeo and Jeanne's 15-month-old orphaned daughter, Jeanne Modigliani (1918-1984), was raised by relatives in Italy and knew very little about her parents until her adult years, later writing the 1958 biography "Modigliani: Man and Myth".

This art print measures 20 x 16 inches.
