This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The Weiss sisters (Minna and Ray) were identical twins, and they both graduated from the Pratt Institute in New York.  During the 1920’s and 1930’s they studied in Paris with Edouard Leon and traveled throughout Europe sketching the places which became the subjects of their many prints. 

They exhibited their work widely in the United States and in Paris, and their etchings are in the collections of the British Museum, Biliotheque Nationale in Paris, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Public Library, National Museum of American Artists in Washington, D.C., Tweed Museum of Art in Duluth, Minnesota, Block Art Museum at Northwestern University in Chicago and the Yale University Art Gallery.

Ray Weiss taught art at private schools in New Haven and then established her own school.  After her marriage, Minna Weiss Zellner lived most of her life in Philadelphia.  Both sisters first exhibited with the New Haven Paint& Clay Club* in 1930. 

Ray Weiss was the Club Secretary from 1935 to 1937.  Her etching*, Les Grandes Arbres, received the New Haven Paint & Clay Club Connecticut Prize in 1932.  Though neither sister exhibited with the Club after 1939, they were members for the rest of their lives.
