Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A Russian Jewish expressionist portrait, still life and landscape painter, Chaim Soutine lived most of his life in France, especially Paris and the district of Montparnasse.  His "work is characterized by its distortions both of space and of subject matter, violence of colour and brush-stroke, making the painting a whirlwind of movement." (Phaidon)

He achieved public recognition during his lifetime, but was plagued with self-doubt about his work, especially color and form, (showing 500 of 4659 characters).
