Summary:
Identification on verso (newsprint): This is a corner of Moses Soyer's studio, top floor of a rambling red brick Columbia University building, 59th & Amsterdam Ave. Moses in white shirt, stands next to Isaac. Moses' twin, Raphael, is seated. They frequently get together to criticze each other's work. The subject here is the easel canvas of Moses' wife, Ida, a dancer. On platform, still in costume, Ida chats with a Moses pupil, blonde Mrs. Lionel Stander, wife of the actor. At the right, painting, is Sandra Dagin, a pupil and model. Standing next to her and probably kibitzing is Rudolph, who poses and philosophizes and is reputed to be the most widely misinformed man on almost any subject. Beside the costume rack in the rear there is an upright piano, a sewing machine, and bric-a-brac galore which Moses uses as props in his paintings. Photos by Cosmo Sileo.
