Chaïm Soutine (1893-1943)
The Groom, also says the hunter, 1925
Like a melancholic, disarticulated puppet, The Groom (cat. rais. II, no. 89) offers the vision of a young man with a puny body, seated but resting on nothing, present but looking away. His dislocated appearance is accentuated by the fragile and artificial geometry of the body, by the asymmetry of the face, by "a soft and elusive manner" and, above all, by the particular treatment of the hands: "Like Van Gogh, Soutine paints counterfeit hands which seem, so deformed are they, not to be part of the character and to play an independent role on their own", Maurice Tuchman remarks.
