 “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.”
