A portrait of the artist at age 60. Russian-born Soyer’s twin brother Moses, and brother Isaac were all figurative painters and all taught at the New School for Social Research in New York. As quoted in the Gettings catalogue: I had a studio with a big skylight on Second Avenue and Third Street. I did this looking in a Mirror.
