Montegrappa Modigliani Limited Edition Ballpoint Pen
This pen is a consignment pen, so it is pre-owned. It has not been used or carried, but it has been handled so there are micro scratches present. No major scratches or issues with the pen. Comes complete with original box, but box does show some wear.
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.
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.
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. A distinctive sign of the Genio Creativo collectionis the solitary gem, a symbol of unique genius: a blue topaz.
