About the Class

Amedeo Modigliani, Jules Pascin, and Chaim Soutine were Jewish expatriates living in Paris in the 1920s. They shared a fascination with the studio and café life of Montmartre and Montparnasse and earned a reputation as peintres maudits (cursed painters). Explore their emotional responses to their surroundings and the culture in which they lived and worked.
