Limited Edition 150 Fountain Pens in Resin and 18K Rose Gold
From the Montegrappa Website:
“Each year the Genio Creativo collection celebrates an historical figure who has led to a new way of experiencing the world. The second limited edition celebrates the unique and precious talent of another great Italian: Amedeo Modigliani, the artist whose famous portraits revealed the true essence of the soul.
Although he moved to Paris in 1906 to pursue his artistic career, Modi – a nickname that sounds like the French word “maudit” which means “damned” – always remained an impulsive and generous Tuscan. Tradition has fueled the legend of this nonconformist, dissolute artist, but his artistic fervor mainly reveals a man inclined towards poetry and passion, who lived and loved life to the fullest.
His portraits are undoubtedly his signature works: in these unique paintings, his profound psychological study of the subject is expressed through twisted, tormented lines and radiant, vibrant strokes of the brush.
Modigliani’s portraits inspired Montegrappa’s design of its limited edition: the barrel and cap are oval like his subjects’ faces, the clip is long and asymmetrical like their noses, and the cap ring has the typical irregular shape of his models’ lips. The 18K gold nib is engraved with one of Modigliani’s famous head studies. Precious resin,in the same deep blue found in many of his works, is used to suggest Modigliani’s artistic “signature”: a string, vibrant brush stroke that characterized each painting.”
