Amedeo (Beloved of God) Modigliani was considered to be the quintessential bohemian artist, his legend almost as infamous as Van Goghs. In Modiglianis time, his work was seen as an oddity: contemporary with the Cubists but not part of their movement. His work was a link between such portraitists as Whistler, Sargent, and Toulouse-Lautrec and that of the Art Deco painters of the 1920s as well as the new approaches of Gauguin, Cézanne, and Picasso.
