Chaim Soutine at the National Gallery of Art

Soutine, "Portrait of a Young Man", National Gallery of Art

Russian born Impressionist painter Chaim Soutine always gets my attention in a museum. I enjoy his generous and playful application of paint, bright color, and masterful physical brushwork. It felt like a double treat to not only see one of his paintings, but to see a portrait done OF him by contemporary Italian painter, Amedeo Modigliani.

The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. is a treasure. What a thrill to see masterworks there!
