Guillaume was determined to escape the modest background into which he was born, and, having acquired his artistic education in the cafes of Montmartre, he began his career by acquiring Picassos and African statuettes, becoming something of a specialist in the latter. If the model is indeed Radiguet, he would have been a mere twelve years old inand spending more time at the lycee Charlemagne than in the studios and cafes of Montmartre or Montparnasse. Conceived as a return to impasto, and notably richer in colour, it nevertheless gives an overall monochrome impression. As a collector, he eventually owned more than five thousand works of modern art, all of which he lost at the gaming-table. The first owner of this little portrait was the police superintendent Leon Zamaron Now the work stands as one of the true masterpieces of the early 20th century.

Hastings was thirty-six at the time of this portrait, but Modigliani mostly portrayed her with a very smooth, doll-like face. Another portrait, probably of Radiguet, dated "" by Modigliani himself, bears the annotation raymond. Pacheco was close to Fernando Pessoa, with whom he founded the poetic movement Orfeuand formed part of a Futurist avant-garde that was determined to revolutionize graphic art in Portugal. They had studios in the same building, and although year-old Anna had recently married, they began an affair.

But a very womanly roundness softens the mask of this anonymous face. He then suggested that she should sit for him, and created a carte de visile from the back of a packet of Gitanes, on which he wrote his address, 8 Rue de la Grande Chaumiere. Daily life was difficult. Modigliani devoted his entire life to portraiture, to the almost total exclusion of other genres, and the series of some hundred or so different faces that he represented constitutes a sort of composite portrait, the expression of his most inward perspective. Apollinaire spotted it, and thus began the life of art dealing and research to which Paul Guillaume thereafter devoted himself full-time.
