Perhaps the most famous of expressionistic artwork by Almedo Modigliani, “Jeanne Hebuterne in a Large Hat” was inspired by his wife in 1918. The Italian born painter moved to Paris in 1906 where he would go on to create artwork in the Paris Salons of the 1920’s with other famous artist of the period including Picasso, Renoir, Chagall, and Braque. Our namesake tapestry is a textile replica of Modigliani’s iconic portrait replete with his signature exaggerations and distortions of the human form such as an elongated neck, long nose, mask-like face and almond shaped eyes. The eyes he left without pupils, believing he could not paint the eyes entirely until he knew the person’s soul. This tapestry will become a conversation piece when hung in the home above the mantel, in a large powder room, or a bedroom. Woven in Belgium from 100% cotton. Backed with lining for a finished look and tunneled for ease of installation.
