Self Portrait

Gift of Jayson D. Pankin

Raphael Soyer came to the United States from Russia in 1912. In the 1950’s, along with fellow artists including Edward Hopper and Ben Shahn, Soyer founded the art magazine Reality. His work remained realistic throughout his career, even amidst the popularity of abstract art. Soyer was a life-long friend of the artist Chaim Gross, whose work is also included in this exhibition.
