Bronze relief, 9 x 9 x 1"
Raphael Soyer spent some time in 1983 as an artist-in-residence at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I met him when he came to visit Steven Cortright's lithography class. I showed him a portfolio of my prints and some photographs of my sculptures. We corresponded for a while before he died. The portrait was done using techniques of both Egyptian or hollow relief and bas relief.
