Biography   Joseph Raffael


Joseph Raffael, painter and printmaker, was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1933.  He studied at Cooper Union, New York City, 1953-54, and received a Summer Fellowship to the Yale-Norfolk School in 1954.  He received his BFA degree from the Yale University School of Art, 1954-56, studying with Josef Albers.

His early 1960s Photo-Realist paintings depicted nature based on photographs of animals, ponds and foliage.  Large-scale close-ups of animal faces, such as Lizard Head, and human faces like "African Lady," were said to reflect a deep concern for nature.  Raffael states his interest in "observing fertile and fantastic things that have within them the power to erupt, like Vesuvius."
