A British poet and journalist, Beatrice Hastings moved to Paris in 1914, where she quickly became absorbed into the thriving avant-garde scene in Montparnasse. Hastings met Modigliani, and the pair began a stormy two-year relationship. In this portrait, Modigliani experiments with cubism, translating his sitter into sharp, blocky forms. At one time there was a strip of newspaper pasted to the surface; traces of the newsprint ink are visible in the background, just below her name.
