Chaïm Soutine is one of the most staggering painters of his century. His still lifes with poultry burst into our faces, his frantic scenery on the edge of disaster make the wind visible. Anyone who has experienced the shock of seeing them will never quite recover. Soutine is a painter who has entered into legend: because of his place in the history of art and also because of the myths which make a halo of incertainty float over his life. Due to the unfortunate lack of rigor of previous biographies, this work plays an important role in dispelling the last lingering clichés.
