Overview

 

For a couple of decades before World War II, a group of immigrant painters and sculptors, including Amedeo Modigliani, Marc Chagall, Chaim Soutine and Jules Pascin dominated the new art scene of Montparnasse in Paris. Art critics gave them the name "the School of Paris" to set them apart from the French-born (and less talented) young artists of the period. Modigliani and Chagall eventually attained enormous worldwide popularity, but in those earlier days most School of Paris painters looked on Soutine as their most talented contemporary. Willem de Kooning proclaimed Soutine his favorite painter, and Jackson Pollack hailed him as a major influence.

Soutine arrived in Paris while many painters were experimenting with cubism, but he had no time for trends and fashions; like his art, Soutine was intense, demonic, and fierce. After the defeat of France by Hitler's Germany, the East European Jewish immigrants who had made their way to France for sanctuary were no longer safe. In constant fear of the French police and the German Gestapo, plagued by poor health and bouts of depression, Soutine was the epitome of the tortured artist. Rich in period detail, Stanley Meisler's Shocking Paris explores the short, dramatic life of one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century.

 

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Deborah Solomon
…offers a fresh and moving account of the origins of modern art by shifting the perspective from Picasso and his merry band to a group of exiles who conversed in Yiddish and were centered at La Ruche, a ramshackle "beehive" of studios in Montparnasse. In other words, the book focuses on the significant number of Jewish painters in the School of Paris, a subject seldom mentioned in art history…Meisler's book reminds us that the French art scene was shadowed by xenophobia and cowardice even when it was in full bloom in the '20s and '30s. He wants us to see Paris as less fluffy and convivial than other writers have suggested, and he succeeds in darkening our view of the City of Light. His book also implicitly advocates for new scholarship on Soutine, who remains a fairly unassimilated figure and has yet to be the subject of a full-on biography in English.
