Chaïm Soutine

Jan 13, 1893 - Aug 9, 1943

Chaïm Soutine was a Russian painter who made a major contribution to the expressionist movement while living and working in Paris.
Inspired by classic painting in the European tradition, exemplified by the works of Rembrandt, Chardin and Courbet, Soutine developed an individual style more concerned with shape, color, and texture over representation, which served as a bridge between more traditional approaches and the developing form of Abstract Expressionism.

“I never touched Cubism myself, you know, although I was attracted by it one time. When I was painting at Céret and at Cagnes.I yielded to its influence in spite of myself, and the results were not entirely banal. But then.. .Céret itself is anything but banal. There is so much foreshortening in the landscape that, for that very reason, a picture may seem to have been painted in some specific style.”
