“Whenever it rained (it often rained in Paris) Modigliani took with him a huge old black umbrella.
We would sit together under this umbrella on a bench in the Jardin du Luxembourg in the warm
summer rain. We would jointly recite Verlaine, whom we knew by heart, and we were glad we
shared the same interests.”
