Chaim Soutine ~ Berlin
The Stasi came through in the middle of the night and removed the cube conversation about The Little Pastry Chef. Probably the only thing worse for Soutine being a Russian Jew would have been that he lived in Europe during the Nazi Regime. In any case, as a substitution for that great conversation here is a painting of Berlin and the River Spree. It's attributed to Soutine and was sold as such at an auction in 2005.
This painting seemed to be a fitting replacement for the Cube Conversation since I'm staying in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin while Amy is in the Cube at work.
