BOOKS / Lithuanian Modernist

The Lithuanian-born Chaim Soutine (1893-1943), a vivid portraitist and master of the still life, is one of the least-known of Modernists, in part because he destroyed or refused to exhibit much of his work. Soutine, by Maurice Tuchman (Taschen pounds 39.99, 2 volumes), a lavish but inexpensive catalogue raisonnee, should put that right. Above: 'Still Life with Turkey'
