Abstract:

"Chaim Soutine (1893-1943), born in a remote village in present-day Byelorussia, became one of the best known members of the group of expatriate artists who, between the two World Wars, came to be known as the School of Paris." "Avigdor Poseq's new study of Soutine's work demonstrates that his Jewish background, and his struggles against it, provide the key to his highly individual and innovatory paintings, dismissed by contemporary critics as 'Jewish smears' and a sign of racial inferiority. Throughout his life Soutine had to struggle against his Jewishness for acceptance as an artist, and never referred to it overtly in his work. Nevertheless, as this survey fascinatingly reveals, his ineradicable cultural and ethnic heritage lies just below the surface of his paintings."--Jacket.
