To support Soutine/De Kooning, an exhibition that explores the affinities between the work of the Lithuanian artist Chaim Soutine and the Dutch American artist Willem de Kooning. Co-organized by the Musée de l’Orangerie and the Barnes Foundation, this show considers how the work of Soutine had a decisive influence on the development of de Kooning’s art, especially following Soutine’s posthumous retrospective held at The Museum of Modern Art in 1950, which the American artist studied at length. The exhibition travels to both co-organizing venues and is accompanied by both a French-language and an English-language catalogue.
