Raphael Soyer (American, 1899-1987)
Springtime, c. 1970. Signed "Raphael Soyer" in pencil l.r., inscribed "AP" in pencil l.l. Color lithograph on paper, image size 14 1/4 x 18 1/8 in. (36.1 x 46.0 cm), framed.
Condition: Pale mat burn, gentle rippling, not examined out of frame.
N.B. In 1938 Soyer created a black and white lithograph of these same three men seated on a park bench (see Cole, 56), but in that composition he included other figures behind them together with the foliage and a statue from Washington Square, New York. Here the setting is ambiguous, but he has added color.
