Raphael Soyer (American, 1899-1988)

Raphael Soyer was the twin brother of artist Moses Soyer, and the older brother of artist Isaac Soyer. They were born in 1899 in Tombov, Russia and came to the U.S. in 1912. R. Soyer studied art in New York at the Cooper Union, the National Academy of Design, and the Art Students League. His favored themes are urban views (such as Sixth Avenue), interiors, and quiet moments in the lives of people. He also worked in the print media, etchings, and lithographs. After 1940, he began to concentrate on studies of women at work or posing in the studio. His paintings and prints are in almost all major U.S. museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
