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."
