Chaïm Soutine, Le petit pâtissier (the little baker), 1922-1923, Oil on canvas, 97×78 cm, Paris, musée de l’Orangerie
I like this work for its expressive power
I like this work for the treatment of the white garment, with its multiple touches of color
I like that the portrait of this common man is composed like a royal portrait or a Virgin and Child
I like this little red rag, a touch of violence in the middle of the white
And you, what do you think about it?
