About

Raphael Soyer Original Lithograph - Watercolor added by the artist's hand, 1955 The image measures 13" H x 8 ½" W. Frame measures: 23 1/4"H x 18" W Signed lower right in pencil beneath the image and also lower left in the stone. The image depicts a dancer resting. Titled "The Dancer." This watercolor/lithograph was originally from Garelick's Gallery of Michigan whose owner, Robert Garelick retired to Scottsdale, Arizona. I purchased this unique piece from his personal collection after he retired and have had it in my own for many years. Born in Russia (1899-1987) in 1899, Raphael Soyer is identified as a Social Realist because of his interest in the common man. Soyer moved with his family from Russia to the Lower East Side of New York City in 1913. Soyer attended free classes at Cooper Union and at the National Academy of Design. Guy Pene du Bois, a teacher at the Art Students League, recognized his talent and introduced him to Charles Daniel, who gave him his first solo exhibition in 1929. The success of this event secured his position as a professional artist. Both of Soyer's brothers, Moses and Isaac, were also artists. With his identical twin Moses, he painted murals for the post office in Kingessing, Pennsylvania. He also taught at the Art Students League. The Depression's economic difficulties could be seen in his subjects and unemployed men caught Soyer's eye. Women at work became a theme with Soyer after 1940.
