Growing up in Harlem during the height of the Harlem Renaissance, Sam Middleton (1927-2015) emerged as an artist in early 1950s New York where he formed close friendships with New York School artists such as Kline, Pollock, and Motherwell. Seeking a more open-minded environment to pre-Civil Rights America, Middleton moved to the Netherlands, in 1962. Middleton's profound love for music, fostered from an early age in New York's jazz scene, was at the heart of his mixed-media work. Middleton's work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of Art, The Studio Museum and the Brooklyn Museum amongst others.
