Raphael Soyer Original Oil on Panel, Dancer Waiting Backstage



This is a beautiful oil painting by social realist Raphael Soyer (1899-1987) It is in excellent condition and has a remnant of an Associated American Artists label on the verso. It measures 16 x 9 inches image size. Frame size is: 24 x 17 inches. Born in Russia 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.
