Chaim Soutine, c.1925, Piece of Beef
Belarusian expressionist Chaim Soutine had a slightly weird fascination with meat, supposedly stemming from his appreciation of genre painting and food-related still lifes. However his obsession took on a whole new form when he purchased an ox carcass from a local butchers and kept it in his studio. He completed a series of paintings of the piece of beef, even adding more blood to the carcass once it began to turn green with mould. When asked by the police to remove the rotting meat, Soutine actually stated that art is more important than hygiene. An interesting view, I think you’ll agree.
