Jack Tworkov on Chaim Soutine’s painting 

“Soutine….has no aim beyond the engagement of his mind through a sensuous experience….Soutine’s apparent indifference to such problems [careful workmanship and precise appearance] —an indifference carried at times toward the picture itself, since the artist’s passion is not for the picture as a thing, but for the creative process itself. It negates professionalism.” ~ Jack Tworkov
