Raphael Soyer
"The Gentleman from Cracow," Signed Limited Edition Lithograph

$600

About

Signed, limited edition lithograph by Raphael Soyer (1899 – 1987) for Isaac Bashevis Singer's "The Gentleman from Cracow," a fantastical Jewish folk tale set in the Polish Jewish ghetto. From a limited, signed edition of large folio prints issued by Touchstone Publishers, 1970, and one of the earliest collaborations between Soyer and Nobel Prize-winning author Singer. This print depicts the scene in the book where the Gentleman, having tempted the Goluth Jews with his worldly possessions into a descent into dancing, drinking and lustful sin, reveals himself to the revelers to be in actuality Ketev Miri, the Chief of the Devils. Raphael Soyer was an American painter, draftsman, and printmaker. Born in Russia, he emigrated to America as a teenager and settled with his family in New York City. Soyer studied painting and printmaking at the Cooper Union Art School, the National Academy of Design, and at the Art Students League. A painter in the style of Social Realism and a WPA artist, he was noted for his compassionate portrayal of urban life and Depression subjects, along with portraits of artists, dancers, and bohemians. Edition 130/150
