Soyer is known for his social realist depictions of daily life around New York City. He participated in the WPA as a muralist, completing the murals at the Kingsessing Station Post Office in Philadelphia with his brother Moses (1899-1974) in 1939, and painting two murals for the Queens Borough Public Library in 1936. He was also engaged as a printmaker, and the WPA published many of his lithographs during that time.
