After early, compelling portraits and unusual landscapes, in the mid-twenties Soutine began to create still lifes featuring dead pheasants, turkeys and rabbits or sides of beef, all of them famous for their expressive brushwork.

This book, expertly assembled by the two editors of the Chaim Soutine catalogue raisonne, not only presents and comments on a number of his key works--particularly from the decade after 1918--that reveal his powerful influence and the momentous originality of his work. It also traces Soutines considerable influence on works of leading modern artists, for Chaim Soutine is regarded as a painters painter, as the book divulges in numerous tell-tale examples: Willem de Kooning, for instance, called Soutine his favorite painter and Jackson Pollock claimed to be greatly indebted to him, as in his late work Scent from 1955.

Likewise, the authors outline distinct connections to many of Jean Dubuffets and Francis Bacons works with respect to technique, perception and motifs.
