Still Life, Gladiolas
Chaim Soutine’s passion for painting led him from a Lithuanian Jewish ghetto in modern Belarus to the art academies of Minsk and, ultimately, Paris. In the French capital, he turned his back on the prevailing avant-garde style of Cubism and embraced the expressive manner of Rembrandt and Goya, whose works were then on view in the Louvre. In Still Life, Gladiolas Soutine brings together the expressive brushstrokes of the Old Masters with the brilliant color and flattened compositions of Paul Cézanne and Henri Matisse.
