Event description

Description

This lecture explores the range and complexity of Soutine’s sources: who he was influenced by and what lessons he learned from the art of the past. Rembrandt (1606-1669) and Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin (1699-1779) are two particularly prominent artists whose influence is felt throughout Soutine’s oeuvre. The lecture also discusses Soutine’s reception since his death in 1943. David Bomberg (1890-1957), Roald Dahl (1916-1990) and Damien Hirst have all cited him a source of inspiration, and he has become known as a ‘painter’s painter’ – often featured in art school curricula and popular with artists who appreciate his painting technique and the novelty of his subject-matter.

General admission: £5 plus booking fee (82p).
