Etchings and Art

Raphael Soyer was a Russian-born painter, twin to the artist Moses Soyer (1899-1974) and the older brother of the painter Isaac Soyer (1907-1981). “During the 1930’s their work was typical of the Social Realism practiced by the American Scene painters, depicting the lives of working people with sympathy and at times a touching air of melancholy, as in Raphael’s well-known ‘Office Girls’ (Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 1936).” (The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Art and Artists, edited by Ian Chilvers).
