Chaim Soutine (1893-1943), the unconventional and controversial painter of Belarusian origin, combines influences of classical European painting with Post-Impressionism and Expressionism. As a member of the Artists from Belarus, a group within the Parisian school, he created an œuvre mainly consisting of landscapes, still lifes, and portraits. His individual style, characterised by displays of humour and despair and by use of luminous colours, makes him a modern master who is still little understood.
Klaus H. Carl is the author of numerous works on the history of great cities, and is also a well-known photographer of flora and fauna. A teacher by profession, he is currently devoting himself to a monumental history of art.
