American
1899-1974

Moses Soyer, an important social realist painter, draughtsman, and printmaker. was born in Russia and emigrated to the United States in 1912. He was the brother of Raphael and Isaac Soyer, both well-known artists. Soyer studied with Ash Can School artists Robert Henri and George Bellows and became a WPA artist and muralist during the depression. Following the depression and World War II, despite trends toward abstractionism, Soyer remained devoted to representational painting and drawing, typically choosing the human figure as his subject.
