CHAIM SOUTINE

LIFE IN DEATH

Cover of Kasmin Gallery publication CHAIM SOUTINE

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.
ISBN: 978-0-9886613-4-9
