List Price $1,600

A voluptuous nude woman poses in a luxurious interior in this black-and-white drawing by Moses Soyer, circa 1950. Born in Russia under czar rule, Moses Soyer (1899-1974) was the twin brother of Raphael Soyer, another notable artist known for his figurative works. He and his family eventually moved to the United States in 1912. Coming to maturity during a time of international unrest, Soyer was greatly impacted by the Great Depression and infused socialist-realist themes into his works, working for the WPA on artistic ventures in the 1930s and 40s. After his government projects, Soyer turned to figurative art, for which he received much acclaim. This drawing is representative of these later artworks, influenced by Degas and showcasing his ability to capture subtle emotions. This drawing is signed on the lower right, and is set in a black mat with a silver wood frame.
