La joven inglesa, pintura de Chaim Soutine. Musée de l’Orangerie.
Russian artist Chaïm Soutine (1893 – 1943) developed a personal style that many see as a step forward the abstract expressionism. His focus was shape, color and texture over representation.
He belongs to the School of Paris, and became friend with Amedeo Modigliani when they both live at La Ruche, the residence for artists in Montparnasse.
American collector Albert C. Barnes bought 60 of Soutine’s paintings.
