Two portraits by Raphael Soyer hang in the Staten Island Museum: A Girl with Flowers (1940) and Self-portrait in my 60’s (1969). Join us for a brief look at Soyer’s life, philosophy on art, and the story of how these two artworks found a home on Staten Island.
“From all that I have seen, I am more than ever convinced that art must communicate, and it must represent, describe and express people, their lives and times.” – Raphael Soyer
Lunch and Learn is a new lecture and presentation series beginning with a focus on objects in the museum’s collection. Join us when you’re hungry for knowledge, but only have time for a snack.
