Sometimes, I think Cafe Society is too much society and not enough cafe, what ever that may mean.
So, I shall let you in on a secret: I see dead artists. Once every two weeks, I will start a new thread featuring an artist of my choice. (I see them you don’t, so there!)
I will interview the artist throughout the time. Perhaps you have a question for the artist. I will ask them for you. they may or may not answer. You all know how fickle artists can be!
Just for clarity, when the artist types on the keyboard, they will type in a different colour than me.
Let’s begin, shall we?
The first Artist on my list is Amedeo Modigliani.
I ran into him at the Kimball Art Museum at his show. He was standing behind the Brancusi, amused at the turn out.
Babs: Mr. Modigliani, to begin with, I have to tell you… you’re quiteattractive!
Modigliani: heh! Thanks, but please, call me Modi. All my froends do. I must say though, I wouldn’t really have been your type. I would have broken your heart. I lead a very wild life of sex, drugs and art! It ultimatly lead to my early death. I was only 36 (sigh). it was pretty funny though…
I was always being hassled by the cops in Paris. They were always taking me in for my drunk escapades. I thouht it was poetic that they were in attendence at my funeral…standing at attention! I had to burst out laughing when I heard Picasso say,“Do you see? Now he is avenged.” I just know he heard me.
B: really? That is pretty fascinating stuff!
B: let me link to a few of your pictures:
Let’s wait a while, over this cup of coffee, and see if the dopers have any questions for you.
M: Sounds like fun, Babs!I can’t wait to hear the questions.
