Biography from Dixon-Hall Fine Art:
Born in Russia, Ralph Taylor resided in Philadelphia where he studied at the Graphic Sketch Club and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts with Henry McCarter. He also traveled and studied abroad in Italy, France and England.

Taylor was a member of the Philadelphia Art Alliance, Philadelphia Print Club, Philadelphia Graphic Sketch Club, Allied Artists of America, and exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (1921-29 and 1949) where he won the Mary Butler Memorial Prize for "Concert".  Other venues were the Corcoran Gallery Biennial (1923), Philadelphia Art Club (1928), Bower Gallery, NYC (solo, 1930), Woodmere Art Gallery, Graphic Sketch Club, National Academy of Design (1930), Allied Artists of America (1944), Da Vinci Alliance (gold medal, 1959), and Philadelphia Art Alliance.

His work is in the collections of the Fleisher Art Memorial, LaFrance Art Institute, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Graphic Sketch Club.

Taylor was close friends with Arthur B.Carles (1882-1952), one of Philadelphia's seminal modernist painters who allied himself with the Fauvist movement when he lived and worked in Paris from 1907-19.  French Fauvism, literally meaning "wild beasts", refers to the paintings characterized by "an orgy of pure color", which were exhibited in Paris at the Salon d'Automne in 1905.
