CHAIM SOUTINE

LIFE IN DEATH

Image

Organized with curators Esti Dunow and Maurice Tuchman, the gallery's 2014 exhibition offered the incredibly rare opportunity to see fifteen Soutine masterpieces in a commercial gallery in Chelsea.  Roald Dahl's macabre story "Skin" – in which a semi-fictionalized version of Soutine plays a major role – is reproduced, along with a scholarly introduction which approaches the work from a neuroscientific point of view.  The catalogue contains stunning plate photography of the exhibtion works:  landscapes, portraits, and several of the artist's wrenching paintings of broken or flayed animal bodies.

Stiff softcover, 88 pages; 10 x 9 inches / 25.4 x 23 cm.
