Previously owned by former U.S. Ambassador Theodore E. Cummings, deceased, of Los Angeles, California, who is also credited for founding the current Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Fitting, considering the fact that the artist Modigliani was also Jewish, as well. The painting was sold at auction prior to his departure with his wife Suzanne, to take the post of U.S. Ambassador of Austria in 1981. The picture hung in their home as part of an extensive collection of original Masters, since about the late 1950's.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
