This exhibition brings together an outstanding group of portraits by Chaïm Soutine (1893-1943). Soutine was one of the leading painters in Paris in the 1920s and 1930s and was seen by many as the heir to Vincent van Gogh. In the early 1920s, Soutine became fascinated by the cooks and waiting staff of French hotels and restaurants, attired in boldly coloured uniforms. The portraits of these humble figures Soutine painted over the following decade helped to establish his reputation. This major show is the first time Soutine has been the subject of a significant exhibition in the United Kingdom for 35 years.

The Friends will enjoy a private curatorial pre-view.
