Why Beatrice Hastings was able "to go toe to toe with her lover", Amedeo #Modigliani

Modigliani gave up sculpture the way he took it up: suddenly. Most of the work we associate with his career was painted during the last five years of his life. This includes a remarkable group of portraits of Hastings, an English writer, poet, and literary critic he met in 1914 and lived with until 1916. He also often painted his wife Jeanne Hebuterne , who was 19 when they met in 1917. Describing the way the artist portrayed these two women in his life, Jordan says that Hastings, as an accomplished woman, ‘could go toe to toe with her lover,’ following that the compositions of her emit ‘a face off between two powerful actors.’ Hebuterne, by contrast, had ‘a more generous personality, was less abrasive, and brought out a lyrical mode,’ says Jordan.
