Perhaps not surpringly, it's not all painting.

Cheim & Read's brilliantly curated and brilliantly mounted friends of Soutine show, "The New Landscape/The New Still Life: Soutine and Modern Art" includes sculpture as well as painting. You may have already heard the superlatives of all the critics, so I'll only say here that I thought this show worthy of every one of them.
