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 Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism, those with a Jewish mother (or those who underwent a halakhic conversion) are considered Jewish, then that makes him Jewish. His father was Jewish too.

Amedeo Modigliani (whose full birth name was Amedeo Clemente Modigliani) was born on 12 July 1884 in Livorno, Italy. Amedeo Modigliani passed away on 24 January 1920 (aged 35).

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.
