Was Amedeo Modigliani Jewish?

Amedeo Modigliani

Well, to make a long story short, Amedeo Modigliani was Jewish!

Since Amedeo Modigliani's mother was Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes him also Jewish. His father was Jewish too.

Amedeo Modigliani (who's full birth name was Amedeo Clemente Modigliani) was born on 12 July 1884 in Livorno, Italy.

He was an Italian painter and sculptor who worked mainly in France. Primarily a figurative artist, he became known for paintings and sculptures in a modern style, characterized by mask-like faces and elongation of form.
