Chaim Soutine: Against the Current

Themes of exile and alienation in the early work of Soutine.

Inspired by Rembrandt, Chardin and Courbet, Chaïm Soutine forged a new Expressionist idiom that bridged art history and modernity in its articulation of human vulnerability and existence on society’s margins. His impasto portraits, executed in broad brushstrokes, his agitated, frenetic landscapes and his famous paintings of slaughtered animals all express, in vivid colors, an intense hunger for life and profound alienation in an uncertain world. Hardcover, 160 pages.
