Artist's signature, lower right: Raphael Soyer
Early on in Marjorie Searl's career at MAG, in the early 1990s, she was intrigued by this painting and wondered how Stapleton ended up modeling for Raphael Soyer. She went so far as to try to track down her agent and leave a message for her asking that question. One day, she was sitting at her desk in the education department, and the phone rang. On the other end of the line was - Maureen Stapleton! She herself was calling to answer the question. They talked for a while, and she told the story of leaving Troy, NY, determined to become an actress. As she described, she went to New York and it took a while to convince people of her talent. To support herself, she modeled for artists such as Raphael Soyer.
