Rifka Angel

RIFKA ANGEL (RUSSIA, 1899–1988)

Rifka Angel was born to Jewish parents in Kalvarija, Russia. She has lived in New York and Chicago since the age of 15 when she immigrated to the USA. Angel emerged as one of the first artists in the US in the 1930s to use an encaustic technique mixing beeswax with pigment in muffin tins and fusing (a process her naval architect husband, Milton Warren Douthat, helped develop).
