Jeanne & Modigliani is a 144 page graphic novel written by Nadine Van Der Straeten. This is the second Kickstarter Campaign run by Black Panel Press, following up on the success of Ancient Astronauts in October. Achieving little recognition in his own lifetime, Amedeo Modigliani went on to become a highly influential expressionist artist after his untimely death in 1920. Jeanne Hebuterne was his last companion, his ever-faithful supporter.
Although a talented artist in her own right, Jeanne is pulled into the abyss of Modigliani's destructive ego, to tragic ends. ...
Jeanne Hebuterne... she who quietly slipped through her 19 years in the background of the scene, as if to apologize for being there. This is her story...
