The original work is dated about 1916 and it is conserved in London at the Courtauld Gallery. Although it is not certain, the painted subject could be Beatrice Hastings, who in 1916 was still Modigliani's companion. The woman's face is elongated, like a mask, with almond eyes and distorted features; through this representation, the artist brings together traditional and avant-garde elements typical of European aesthetic canons and elements of other cultures: African, Egyptian and Oceanic. The woman's somatic forms and traits contain a subdued elegance that expresses herself in a sober manner in her poses and looks. The nude image of the subject is both sensual and composed, giving the canvas a strong sense of intimacy. Amedeo Modigliani is famous for his quick work: it is said that he completed a portrait in one or two sessions. His paintings, when finished, were never retouched. Of him, all those who had posed said that being portrayed by Modigliani was like "let their soul be undressed". In 1917 some of his paintings whose subjects are "without veils" were exhibited at the Berthe Weill Gallery in Paris. They were judged as indecent and without shame and the exhibition was closed for outrage to modesty.
