"Autograph Manuscript Signed By Maurice Sachs On Chaïm Soutine"
Autograph manuscript signed addressed to Marcelin and Madeleine Castaing. 5p. in-4. Very nice article on Chaïm Soutine's painting.
With a sending "This is the French translation of the article. To Marcelin and Madeleine, affection."

" Here is a Jewish painter, here is a Slavic painter, here is a French painter - a case like this has never arisen in the history of painting ... it is the task of great souls to illuminate their misfortune, to to exalt their ineradicable suffering, to carry it, still hot from the pains of their heart in the shining harmonies of creation. This is what Soutine did - what? We are astonished that his painting is "distorted", we are surprised that it is full of blood and disasters - but what was his life, where does he come from, so that we expect him the moonlit scarpolette games of Versailles… there are two races of painters: that of Rembrandt and Renoir, that of Vinci and Picasso. The painters of matter, the painters of the spirit… but the painters of the mind are painters "by chance", the painters of matter by "necessity". Spirit painters are wizards whose genius (if they have any) is expressed through painting. The painters of matter of the craftsmen whose work which is their truth can reach the genius… ”

In the thirties Maurice Sachs left for America. One of his friends, Zozia Kochansko, opened her living room for him to give a series of paid conferences. The success was such that the radio station NBC offered him a contract. In December 1932 the American review “Creative Art” published an article by Sachs devoted to Soutine.
