Moses Soyer (1899 - 1974)

Moses Soyer was the twin brother of artist Raphael Soyer, and the older brother of artist Isaac Soyer. They were born in 1899 in Tombov, Russia and came to the U.S. in 1912. M. Soyer studied in New York City at the Cooper Union, the National Academy of Design, the Educational Alliance, and the Ferrer School, all between 1916 and 1920. His work extends into the present Rembrandt's warm, expressive, and humanistic portraits and interiors. Like his brother Raphael, he did many self-portraits. During the 1930s and 1940s he depicted the effects of the Depression on the unemployed and the underprivileged. During the 1940s, he portrayed many dancers, often in poses, and often with a measure of melancholy. His works are found in major U.S. museums, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
