Link to the sitter biography

The sitter was born in 1903 and this painting is dated by experts in 1915 so the sitter was 12 years?
Biographers say he lived in Val de Marne (close to Paris) until 1917.
The Letters MC ?

There is a sketch for this painting? at the Barnes coll. in Philadelphia - Parisot has published this drawing at his CR as nº 4/15 but I have no knowledge if he has published the painting.

There are other 2 portraits attributed to Modigliani of Radiguet:

raimond amedeo modigliani
Raymond dated in 1915

portrait of a young man
Raymond dated in 1910

Some experts even mention the silly thing that Radiguet shared the love of Hastings with Modigliani and that his novel "the devil in the flesh" was related to that situation.

1.- Hastings was not married to Modigliani
2.- Hastings was long divorced
3.- Radiguet was 12?
4.- Hastings was far from the sinner affection reflected in the novel.
