Soutine Project - 2005 - 07

Chaim Soutine is today regarded as one of the major painters of the mid-Twentieth Century. This project was planned by Mr. Ken Groger, of the Humanities Department, Shizuoka University, and researched by the author. The objective was to investigate the early life of the painter Chaim Soutine while, at the same time, looking into the Jewish diaspora from the Baltic states. This turned into a personal mission for Mr. Groger, as his parents, from both sides, emigrated to the U.S.A. from the region, as well as having Soutine as a grand-uncle (his father's mother's brother). We visited the Baltics in August, 2005, to document this research, with Mr. Groger returning in 2007, to do further interviews.
