Original, vintage, American social realism portrait oil painting, by Bernice Burr Singer, (1912-1992).


Bernice Burr Singer was a painter concerned with the plight of workers, the lower classes, and minorities.  She frequently depicted scenes of laborers, African Americans, and others, working, riding on buses, and in other Social Realist scenes.

Bernice Lee Singer was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1912, and studied at that city's School of Fine Arts, as well as at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Art Students League in New York City, and in Taos, New Mexico, in private classes with Walter Ufer.

In 1939, Singer settled in Los Angeles, where she was active in the California Watercolor Society, and exhibited frequently throughout the state; including at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Oakland Art Gallery, and the San Francisco Art Association. Singer was also a member of the California Watercolor Society; (and the vice president, in 1958).
