Amedeo Modigliani (1884 1920) was only honored one time with his own solo exhibit in an art gallery; most of his paintings were given away in exchange for meals in restaurants and he died the death of a pauper in some unglamorous corner of Paris. In the years that followed the art world began to learn about Modigliani bit by bit through art reviews like the one attached herein. Written sixteen years after his death, this is a review of a Modigliani exhibit at the avant-garde gallery of Mrs. Cornelius J. Sullivan in New York City:

"C.J. Bulliet (1883 - 1952) in 'Apples and Madonnas' declared that Modigliani's nudes may be ranked ultimately with the great ones of all time - with Giorgione's 'Sleeping Venus', Titian's 'Venus Awake', Goya's 'Maja' (nude and even more impudently clothed), with Manet's sensational wanton in the Louvre.'"
